Astro Mined: Galactic Bombsquad! - free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1

Astro Mined: Galactic Bombsquad is a terrific puzzle app game that combines minesweeper with sokomind.

Your task is to walk your man across a moonscape (the yellow part) and get to the blue circle. Each step you take converts that colored yellow square to the green/blue.  Also, when a square has a 1, that means that of the horizontal./vertical adjacent squares, one of them is a mine. (With minesweeper, the squares diagonally adjacent count.)

See the coins? You get extra stars for picking them up. Importantly, mines cannot be on those squares.

The Sokomind part: there may not be a path to the exit. You will need to push the gray squares (bolders) over those mines. Each gray square can go over exactly 3 mines before disintegrating. And by the way, you will often need that gray square to disintegrate.

The images here look busy & not very appealing, at least to me. In fact, when I'm thinking of my next move, the silly coins/fruit dance in place. Annoying. But trust me, this game is worth your time. The puzzles are quite challenging.

I paid $.99 for the full version.  There are 17 free levels.  Altogether there are 54 levels.
