It's really not. I was pretty disappointed when I bought it, since I've been itching to play something like 10000000 (RPG persistence + basic gameplay element) on my Android phone. The only Minesweeper-like elements are that you're clearing out blocks that have things hidden underneath them and that sometimes blocks are impacted by what is nearby. Although this impact isn't the same as in Minesweeper (where the number in one block is however many mines are in adjacent cells). Rather, if you break open a block that has a monster inside, you can't dig into the adjacent blocks until you've killed (or moved) that monster.
