Neon Mine is minesweeper. You know, the game that used to come free with every version of Windows. It is simple, you have a grid of squares. Press a square and a number comes up. The number refers to how many mines the square touches. Using logic, deduce the placement of every mine. Click a mine and game over.

Its not that hard, even on hard.

Its very hard to screw up minesweeper, and the developers of Neon Mine did an admirable game of mine sweeper. There are three gird sizes and three difficulty levels. Play on hard to get any real difficulty.

This is Microsoft Minesweeper. This is how its done!

The big issue I have with Neon Mine is the lack of custom grids. In Microsoft Minesweeper, you can fine tune your grid to just the right difficulty level. You can’t here. So you once complete a hard level on the three girds, there isn’t much reason to go back more than a few times. There are even better Minesweeper games on the Switch.

Overall: A lack of a custom grid drags down Neon Mine.

Verdict: YMMV
