    I'm working on the classic minesweeper puzzle game for mobile platforms (Android, iOS etc.)

    Minesweeper Go as opposed to classic version adds a lot of features oriented for advanced and experienced players.

    Beta version of the game released on Android play market

    System Requirements: Android v4.0.3+

    Here is a small list of key features:

    - Game playback
    Each game is recorded and you can playback it any time you want. Players can learn how to solve boards fast just by looking recordings of the best players or share own boards.

    - Advanced chording
    Chord can be applied recursively. Chord recursion helps to solve minefields at maximum speed.

    - Personal comprehensive score board with various benchmarks.

    - Advanced benchmarks.
    Application allow players to track theirs skill and board solving efficiency progress by
    calculating metrics that heavily used within minesweeper community such as 3BV/s, Taps/s, RQP, IOE, IOS, etc.

    - Explicit Non-Flagging (NF) mode.
    Game is made with No-Flaggers in mind

    - 3BV control feature
    You can generate a custom minefield with predefined 3BV value.

    - Online World Ranking table
    Online World Ranking table keeps competitive spirit among players. Each player can publish personal records and compare them with another players.

    - Cheats.
    Undo on fail, etc.

    See screenshots here

    Some of other features are in progress and will be implemented soon. Notable ones are here:

    - Tournament mode
    - Themes
    - Board save/restore
    - Playback speed tuning and rewinding options

    I will be grateful for any suggestions how to improve the minesweeper app and for the app testing.

    Thanks.
