Nostalgia is something this game brings back. Once you understand how this worked, the game gets you hooked trying to detect all the mines and then the time challenge. Ofcourse, then the size of the challenge. Starting with
  • Beginner : 10 mines (9 x 9 tile grid)
  • Intermediate : 40 mines (16 x 16 tile grid)
  • Advanced : 99  mines (16 x 30 tile grid)
There are more advance version available online and one such was solved and uploaded on Youtube. The game contained 1412 mines with a tile grid of 58 x 118 board. It took the user 59 mins 48 seconds to complete. The Time lapse video below is of 6:14 mins.

Then the question arises - What next? Looks like the people at Cinemassive are creative and also lovers of this game. They brought in something to make this more challenging. One of their impressive products are the Video Wall which contain an array of HD monitors or TV screens seemlessly connected to each other. They have gone and made a challenge of minesweeper which is epic due to its size, thus naming it the Minesweeper Super Challenge.

38,799 mines across 16 x HD video Wall.
Time limit 12 hours
3 attempts per user
Only 10 participants.

The Challenge video shown above is on 24 x HD video wall which was tested out by team that developed it and had a hard time doing so. Therefore the challenge has been put up. Read the conditions on their site. CLICK HERE (I will mention them below also)
