About Mine Sweeper

Minesweeper has its origins in the earliest mainframe games of the 1960s and 1970s. The earliest ancestor of Minesweeper was Jerimac Ratliff's Cube. The basic gameplay style became a popular segment of the board game genre during the 1980s, with such titles as Mined-Out, Yomp, and Cube. Versions of Minesweeper game are generally free, and frequently bundled with operating systems and GUIs, including Minesweeper in Windows, KMines in KDE, Gnomine in GNOME and MineHunt in Palm OS. Apart from the bundled versions, a huge number of Mine Sweeper clones of all shapes and sizes can be found free online. Free variants of the basic Mine Sweeper game generally have differently shaped mine fields in two and three dimensions, or various two-dimensional layouts, such as triangular or hexagonal grids, or possibly more than one mine per cell. For example, X11-based XBomb adds triangular and hexagonal grids, and Professional Minesweeper for Windows includes these and others. In 2001, the Italian "International Campaign to Ban Winmine" voiced strong concern over the Mine Sweeper game, contending that it is an " offense against the victims of the mines " and those who risk their lives to clear them. They created their own "Winflower" game, and lobbied Microsoft to use it in place of Minesweeper in Windows 98. As a reaction to this criticism, the version of Minesweeper included in Windows Vista and Windows 7 offers a play mode in which the mines are replaced with flowers.
