THE STORY
I have long been a fan of the Window game, however after converting to Mac, I was disappointed with the quality of Minesweeper clones available. I searched the web high and low, and though many were available, none reached my high standard of quality. I decided to make my own, and my primary objectives were simple: a slick, non-gimmicky design, and controls that a minesweeper guru would approve of; I believe that I have archived these both. I have been working on this project for almost a year, and now I offer it for your enjoyment.
