Author's Description: Super Minesweeper takes sweeping for mines to a whole new level! Or to be more precise, to several new levels!
There are seven various styles of gameplay, each one serving up a new challenge. These styles include the classic gameplay any Minesweeper player knows of, plus six others: Flagless, Backwards, Multi-Mine, Moving Mines, Endurance, and Mega Mines.
There are also over 100 boards to challenge you. These boards include various patterns of squares, rectangles, hexagons, and other unique and bizarre shapes that will keep your brain moving!
But don't worry if you hit a mine. All is not lost when a mine blows up because you simply gain a time or score penalty instead of a "Game Over"! The game continues until the board is cleared, no matter how many mines you hit along the way!
There are plenty of special effects too, and you can change the colors to your hearts content!
