Even with the countless games that have captured the attention of mobile phone users in recent years, the Minesweeper smartphone app is set to stand out. The game might be dated, but it remains clever and was appreciated as being completely consuming, not to mention its recurrence is enticingly nostalgic.

Known as Minesweeper Q by Spica for the iPhone iOS, the thought-provoking pastime is also available by Sylvain Saurel for Androids under its basic name. The Apple-compatible version offers players some customization for the look of the bomb-checkered surface while the latter version maintains its familiar 90s appearance. You're encouraged to create an account with the new Minesweeper smartphone application, enabling you to track your scores and compare them on an international leaderboard.
