They do not demonstrate mind-numbing graphics, feature amazing soundtracks and cutting-edge in-game technologies that modern entertainment titles have to offer. On the contrary, they are simple, compact, have a rather straightforward «storyline» and are primarily intended for testing your skills and entertaining you during short breaks in your mundane activities. These are casual games, which have always been a free addition to the standard office package on virtually any Windows PC in the world. The original «Minesweeper» was a game enjoyed by millions of users. Now the time has come for its new version to entertain the modern generation of users!
