Your archive contains separate downloads for the ZX Spectrum and the ZX Spectrum 128. These are clearly not the same because the code is different between the two, yet I can find no functional difference between them. There isn't any AY-3-8912 sound in the 128K version, which would be one reason to have two versions. Also, both versions work equally well on 48K Spectrums (even the supposed 128K version – which is actually smaller than the 48K version).

Could you therefore please explain what the difference is between these two versions? Thanks!

Yeah, I was perplexed by this. Neither version appears to have any sound at all, and I can't imagine it was difficult to squeeze into 48K, so... what's the 128 version about?

Nice Minesweeper game, thank you. I also added that to my New Games On C64 from January 2024 -video too.

Compared to other versions it doesn't look so good on C64.

Thanks for the Enterprise version!

But at now the game is not playable:

◾ There is something strange with the timer and game suddenly freezes.

◾ The yellow color of the number "1" is too difficult to read (very similar to an empty cell).

◾ In the IJKL key layout, instead of "L", assigned ":".

Gameboy version... GOGO :)

There is just the little problem that standard C64 joysticks only have one firebutton.

could we get a windows version??
