Review
If you remember sitting at your Windows 98 computer, playing its in-built game, Minesweeper, then you'll probably have a little flutter when you spot the app available to download on Google Play.

If not, let me explain the rules. You are presented with a box of grey squares, which one by one, you have to uncover. The aim is to uncover all the free squares without hitting a mine.

To help you determine which squares are safe, and which are not, each time you press a free square, a series of numbers will appear. These numbers indicate where an adjacent mine is.

You can flag squares you think might have a mine, so that you don't accidentally tap it. This android version is the same as the original, and allows you to share your high scores online.

If you are adept at Minesweeper, then you can get addicted to playing, but if you are rubbish like me, then after losing half a dozen times, the game does start to get tiresome.
