Minesweeper for Windows is definitely one of the most recognizable Microsoft’s products that came up with Windows operating systems. The game was integrated in all older versions of Windows, but it has been removed since Windows 8. Luckily, Microsoft didn’t kill Minesweeper completely, as you can download new, improved version of the game from Windows Store.

Minesweeper was part of Windows’ default games package for years, and it became a legendary part of Windows operating system. Every user of Windows surely played Minesweeper at least once, while some people were really addicted to this simple to play, hard to master game.

Microsoft change a lot of things in the system with Windows 8, some of the changes were major ones, like introducing of the Metro environment and removing of the Start Menu, but some of them were less noticeable, like removing Minesweeper and other games (but some people also consider this a major change, though). And the company decided not to bring Minesweeper and other games back to Windows 10.

But the new version is available in the Windows Store, and it comes with a new, modern design, as well as some new features. Besides improved interface, the new Minesweeper game offers a new Adventure mode, adjustable difficulty, and even Xbox Live support. Microsoft even released the update for this app, bringing a better touch screen optimization, and some bug fixes and improvements.

The changes to Microsoft Minesweeper in the new update are as follows:

  •  Optimization for Windows desktop and touchscreen devices
  •  General bug fixes & optimizations
  •  New ability to reset your statistics

So, if you want to remind yourself of how it is to play Minesweeper again, just go to Windows Store, and download the game for free. It’s great we have an opportunity to play vintage Microsoft games like Minesweeper on Windows 10, but we’re still waiting for more titles, like probably the most famous Windows game ever, Space Cadet Pinball 3D!
