Minesweeper Genius is making its explosive debut on consoles today, blasting down the Switch eShop with the classic gameplay you’d expect from any Minesweeper-inspired release.
A modern take on the classic game of logic, Minesweeper Genius has players sweeping their way through more than 130 levels, 55 of which are “extra-difficult” stages for any Minesweeper experts lurking around. As you can see, though, this isn’t your usual game of Minesweeper; instead, you’ll be moving an alien-cloned Aristotle around the grid (we’re not sure why, either), planting flags and using special tiles to work your way around each level.
Once you’ve managed to beat all of the game’s levels, you can then go on to create your very own with a console-exclusive Custom Level mode. You can see it in action in the trailer above; with a mixture of procedurally-generated wizardry and your customised settings options, you can create pretty much any type of level you like.
As noted above, the game launches today on Nintendo Switch. You can pick it up for yourself for $5.99 / £4.99 / € 5.99 / 7.99 AUD.
