3D puzzler Globesweeper offers up a new take on classic Minesweeper

If you’re into gaming as much as we are, you’ve likely played (or at least heard of) Minesweeper.

Rather than simply navigating around a flat square grid you'll be trying to not blow up across entire worlds. These can range from smaller 92 tile maps to colossal 20,480 tile ones. There are four levels of difficulty to choose from which when combined wi…
