Mine Tower is a vertically scrolling version of the classic Minesweeper. Created by ha55ii over on the Dan-Ball site, it makes for a fast-paced and urgent take on the original.

It's pretty much the exact same set-up we're all used to, except that all the tiles are constantly moving downward. There is one strange design choice however - when you hit a mine, rather than the game ending instantly, it waits until the detonated mine reaches the bottom of the screen before displaying GAME OVER. Other than that, it's pretty decent fun. Minesweeper used to be the only game my brick of a phone could handle, so maybe I enjoyed this more than others will.

Either way, check it out over on Dan-Ball. (Thanks to... 'Someone' for recommending!)
