Positive Spin Media has announced BombSquad 4, a reboot of the minesweeper clone for Mac OS X. It’s available in the Games category of the Mac App Store, costs US$1.99 and requires Mac OS X 10.6 or higher.
Here’s how the game is described: “Remember the ’90s fun of Minesweeper? Renew your addiction with BombSquad and its hypnotizing sound effects, powerful graphics, and explosive fun! It also features an online record book and individual preferences for sound, training, and difficulty. Localized into English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese, you are guaranteed to find some fun in a language that is pretty close to something you understand.
“How does this product improve on the original? BombSquad starts with the ingredients that make minesweeper great puzzle fun, and then adds the ability to resize the game board and the grid size to your heart’s content. A beautiful transparent UI candy shell makes sure you look good while having fun, and then an online record book and scoring system makes sure you get the recognition you deserve.”
