    I like this version. Doesn't look the same, but does the right-click thing like the Windows one.

    And don't forget to check out Softpedia. Unlike VersionTracker or MacUpdate, it has lots of free and open source apps/games.

    I have recently released a Minesweeper game for mac. It is currently supported by Snow Leopard, and available to download from the Mac App Store and my web site:

    I like it rossi, one feature missed is the ability to click both mouse buttons and see all the surrounding unflagged squares, which i used prominently, but other than its a very good port!

    Rossipoo's version of Minesweeper is lovely - small, simple, stylish - but it doesn't work on my Powerbook G4. As it's a Universal app I assume it's because I'm running OS 10.5.

    If you have Wine, just grab the .exe off a Windows machine and play away. :cool:

    I have recompiled it and I believe it should work on PowerPC with 10.5. I don't actually have a machine to test it with however. If anyone could confirm whether or not that works, it would be nice.
