[8:00 AM] Manic Minefields Sweeps In With Minor Changes

The aptly named software development company, Addiction Interactive, has released a new version of the not-so-subtely addictive puzzle game, Manic Minefields. Version 1.3.1 is the akin to the Windows native Mine Sweeper, but on steroids. The latest version features improved optimization and minor bug fixes. According to Addiction Interactive:

Manic Minefields is really 10 (!) different minesweeper games in one program, each with its own unique set of graphics, sounds, special rules, game plots and hi score tables.

You might have played a game called "MineSweeper" (MicroSoft), "Landmines" (Atari Corp), or anything else with the word "sweeper" or "mine" in it. Then you probably know how to play, since the rules of those games and Manic Minefields are very similar.

Changes in version 1.3.1:

  • The program has been optimized to run faster.
  • Some minor bugs have been fixed.
  • The address to Kagi has been updated.
  • Info on how to pay online has been added.

Manic Minefields is available as shareware for US$7, while the unregistered version allows access to 2 of the 10 game variations. You can find more information at the Addiction Interactive web site.
