BombSquad takes the good looks of Mac OS X and its Aqua interface, and mixes it liberally with the popular Windows Minesweeper puzzle/game. The result? A nimble rip-off of a classic game.
Has it ever bothered you how well Minesweeper mirrored real life: one step on a mine and you were through? In an effort to “think different”, BombSquad fixes this oversight: it gives you a period of time (“Crunch Time”) after triggering a bomb to rectify the situation by flagging another bomb. Find another bomb in ten seconds, and everything is OK; don’t find it, and “Boom!” – game over. BombSquad also offers six play combinations to make it fun for newbie and expert alike.
What’s New in this Version
– Ghost Bombs – makes the bombs on the field visible so new users can learn how to interpret the numbers in the game.
– Sound Preferences – Users can turn sound on/off and choose sounds to represent actions in the game.
– Online Record Book (for registered users) – keeps all scores in an online database. The Record Book is accessed via the web and can be searched/sorted in a variety of ways.
– Many more fixes and enhancements.
BombSquad requires Mac OS X 10.1 or higher, and has been tested on a variety of machines running 10.1 and 10.2 “Jaguar”.
