Some folks over at Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team appear to have been feeling a bit nostalgic. IE’s latest bit of marketing mayhem takes the form of a beloved old friend to Windows users: The productivity destroying game MineSweeper.
While the purpose of this release is to allow users to check the performance their favorite window to the web versus Internet Explorer 10, this browser based release still delivers the turn-based, hide-n-seek gameplay of the old OS pack-in, complete with some shiny new visuals. At least if you’re on a PC. Mobile users are left out due to the lack of any means to flag a mine, an act usually done by right-clicking.
Got a couple of minutes and mouse buttons to spare? Head on over and start sweeping up them mines.
