Zombie Minesweeper – what you get when you mix a little girl with shotgun, zombies and landmines!
Mar 7, 2013 7:24 AM –
Zombie Minesweeper is a sumptuous Minesweeper clone where you guide a girl through various levels, safely locating mines and avoiding zombies. The game plays much like the old-school minesweeper game where you identify mines by numbers on a grid. So, if the number is 2 it means there are at least two mines within your vicinity. However, tension is added to the game when all kinds of zombies start roaming around and chasing you. The perfect update to a very retro game, it’s brilliantly playable and lots of fun.
Tested on: Nexus 4
Pros & Cons:
- Brilliant graphics!
- Awesome sound and music!
- Addictive gameplay!
- Possibly lacks some diversity in gameplay.
Zombie Minesweeper is a fresh and fun take on the old PC game of the same name. You take control of a young girl called Sally. Sally has found herself surrounded by suburban mines and chased by blood-thirsty zombie animals. She has to navigate to the safety of the detonator. Then she can set off the mines behind her and end the level.
If you’ve played Minesweeper before- who hasn’t? gameplay is very similar. You have to logically identify where mines are located and subsequently avoid them until the level is clear. In Zombie Minesweeper it is pretty much the same although, if you make it to the detonator, you do not have to uncover every square. You must tap and area into which you want Sally to move and she will. If she hits a mine, however, it all gets very messy. Numbers on the ground indicate mine locations, but you have to deploy some strategy and logic to make sure an area is safe.
The game enhances the original in more ways than I could possibly discuss here. Sally soon gets a gun and can use bullets to blow the following zombies away. She may manoeuvre herself away from a zombie so the undead will walk over a mine and blow themselves up. The game features 30 levels which seem to be plenty to be getting on with, especially when you are fending off zombs and narrowly avoiding certain death my landmine.
The game is also incredibly atmospheric with sound, music and great visual effects which look good whether you play them on a tablet or a phone. Now, there’s no free version of the game to demo, but for around $1, the game is totally worth it so I would definitely recommend you try it out.

The game is lots of fun and very engrossing. You are using your brain to logically work out mine locations, in addition to avoid zombies and trying to uncover areas of the level.
The game is very addictive in exactly the same way the 2D original was. It’s part logic puzzle, part action adventure that you are in the middle of.
The graphics are beautiful. Very smooth, highly detailed and ripe with animation, texture and cartoon colours. There are better games graphically out there, but you’d be hard pushed to find a puzzler out there as sumptuous as this.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The sound is very good. There are various effects; from the zombies, Sally’s screams and exploding mines. Additionally the music is great- adding significant atmosphere and a cute-horror vibe.
