Privacy Friendly Minesweeper App

Privacy Friendly Minesweeper is a moblie version of the classic game Minesweeper. The goal of the game is to find and mark every mine withour triggering one of them.

You reveal a field by clicking on it. If that field contains a mine it is triggered and the game is lost. Otherwise the field will show a number. That number will tell you the amount of mines in the surreounding 8 fields. With that information and logical thinking the mines can be located and marked.

The first field you click each game will not ba a mine. Each game will have a new playing field with randomzed poisitioning of mines, so each game will be a new experience. While the mines are mostly positioned randomly the first field clicked each game will not have a mine, and four or more mines in adjacent fields will be avoided, since such clusters increase the chance of situations that must me solved by guessing.

There are three different gamemodes represinting three difficulties. They differ in playing field size and the amount of mines:

  • 6x10 Playing Field with 7 Mines
  • 10x16 Playing Field with 24 Mines
  • 12x19 Playing Field with 46 Mines

In addition there is the option to create your own gamemode where the size of the playing field (amount of rows and columns) and the proportion of mines (easy / medium / hard).

Up to 10 games can be saved and later continued. Your Performance for the three basic gamemodes is collected and analyzed and can be viewed at the statistic page. There you can check the number of games played, the ratio of won games, the average time of winning mgaes, the number of revealed fields and the 10 best times for each gamemode.

The help page contains information about the app and the rules of the game.

Our Privacy Friendly App differs from other, similar applications with respect to two aspects:

  1. No permissions
    The Privacy Friendly Minesweeper does not use any permissions
  2. No adertisement
    Many other free apps in the Google Play Store dazzle annoying advertising which also shortens battery life.
  3. No user tracking
    Privacy Friendly Minesweeper does not collect or relay any user data.
