I make an attempt to create minesweeper game for mobile platforms that can satisfy sophisticated players.
Minesweeper Go is a classic game clone for Android and iOS mobile platforms that brings a lot of advanced features, here is a small list of them:
▪ Advanced chording
There are several chord recursion options available to help you to achieve fastest board solving times.
Chord recursion is not enabled by default and must be turned on in game options explicitly.
▪ Advanced control settings on your taste.
Select one of flag-on-tap or explore-on-tap modes to suite your gaming style.
Choose how you want to apply chord tap. With single tap or long tap or even double tap.
▪ Personal score board.
Comprehensive local history.
▪ Game playback
Each game is recorded and you can playback it any time you want, show to your friends and prove your achieved best times.
Your game records that were published to World Ranking table can be viewed by other players to make sure of theirs authenticity.
▪ Advanced benchmarks
To track your skill and efficiency at minesweeper Minesweeper Go calculates yours 3BV/s values, Taps count, Taps/s, RQP, IOS, IOE and some other stats.
▪ Explicit Non-Flagging (NF) mode
Just prevents you of setting flag by accident when playing NF style.
▪ 3BV control feature
By utilizing this feature you can generate custom board with any desired 3BV value. Number of iterations, min and max value can be changed.
▪ Online World Ranking table
All records are submitted to the game server where is World Ranking table is kept.
World records are collected for Time and 3BV/s stats. Game records of each player can be seen and replayed by other players
Undo feature. Reverse time back and continue to solve game board even when you are blown up.
Pause game timer when application minimized.
Records set by using any of the cheats are not eligible to WR.
Three classic difficulty levels has a minimum 3BV value:
