Japanese Minesweeper: free puzzle app for iphone, ipad

Japanese Minesweeper is very different from the regular Minesweeper we all played 20 years ago.

Each free cell that you tap will show 4 numbers.  They indicate how many mines are above, below, to the right & to the left of that cell. I'm not sure if I've seen this concept before. I think I have.

Each grid has 100 cells and 25 of them are mine.

When I finally solved a level - after 10 tries or so - I peeked at the Leaderboard and discovered I'm the only person playing it This could be the only puzzle app where I'm first and last. However, I deleted this game - does my name still exist on this game's leaderboard?

What I don't like about Japanese Minesweeper: there are times, usually near the end, when you have no choice but to guess.  Knowing probability is going to help you though.

No iTunes link? I'm not finding this game searching the (UK) App Store.

Don't know if anyone is still interested, but I was able to find it in the German iTunes store:
