App Description

What people have to say about Minesweeper Flags:

"Waiting for this for ages."
"Been waiting a long time for this, great fun!!"
"This app is everything what it should be!"

Tired of playing minesweeper alone? Why not challenge someone else!

We proudly present to you: Minesweeper Flags, the first multiplayer minesweeper game on the App Store!

Minesweeper Flags supports the new and exciting iPhone OS 3.0 Peer-to-Peer feature so you can play minesweeper against your friends wirelessly over Bluetooth. No Wi-Fi network necessary!

Or, if your device doesn't support Bluetooth or you just have nobody to play with, you can always play online against a randomly picked opponent (internet connection required) or test your skills against the computer.

Be prepared for smooth and surprisingly addictive gameplay, combined with beautiful graphics that let you enjoy the game to the fullest.

Minesweeper Flags shares many of the basic minesweeper principles with the original game. A major difference is that you have to find the mines instead of avoid them. A minor difference is that the mines are replaced by flags.
