Bombsquad 1.0 Released
9:37 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Posotive Spin Media, a maker of custom web, database, and multimedia solutions has released the first application in a series of planned OS X shareware applications. The first application, Bombsquad, is a clone of minesweeper, a popular game that is bundled with Windows. Bombsquad has a notable twist from its Windows counterpart though.

Here's the developers desciption of this twist:

Something that always ticked me off about Minesweeper was how well it mirrored real life: one step on a mine and you were through. In an effort to "think different", I fixed this oversight. BombSquad gives you a period of time (I call it "Crunch Time") after triggering a bomb to rectify the situation by flagging another bomb. Find another bomb in ten seconds, and everything is OK; don't find it, and "Boom!" - game over.
The only requirement to run Bombsquad is Mac OS X 10.1 or higher. The cost to register the game is only $5. To learn more about Posotive Spin Media and Bombsquad, follow the provided links below.
