Java Sapper

Java Sapper 1.0

Watch out for mines in this neat Java game


  • Highly addictive
  • A number of customisation options


  • Drab graphics


I'm thinking of suing Microsoft for including Minesweeper in Windows 95, because it's probably the main reason I didn't score as highly as I'd hoped in my college exams, such was the addictive nature of the game.

After installing Java Sapper on my mobile phone I'm now faced with the problem of missing my bus stop every time I travel to work because the game faithfully recreates Minesweeper so you can play it anywhere you like.

Your goal is obviously to detect all the mines hidden on the game board without actually hitting one. As with the original, you do this by clicking on the little squares to reveal the position of the mines using the numbers under each one.

Clear the board quickly enough and you'll get lots of juicy points.

Disappointly, Java Sapper adds little to the original Minesweeper, and graphically it's still very boring.

There are a few options, such as restarting a game, modifying the difficulty level, and choosing between stlyus or keyboard control.

Thankfully though, the game retains the same addition level of it's Windows-based grandfather meaning that I'll have a lot of explaining to do when I turn up late for work tomorrow.

With Java Sapper you can now play Minesweeper everywhere. Java Sapper is a Java software which works on a varied range mobile devices. The object of Sapper is to locate all the mines as quickly as possible without uncovering any of them.
