More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

It's 1849, and there's gold in those hills! Fetch gold, diamonds, and other treasure from mines out in the Old West using your trusty hook.

Based on the original arcade classic "Gold Miner", Gold Mine introduces some new twists to this old favorite. In this version, you each level is completely independent of the previous level, so you can always go back to where you left off without starting at the beginning.

Also, in this version, you may visit the General Store at any time to buy things for your miner, like dynamite, strength tonic, a rock field guide, and other fun things. In higher levels, you may purchase multiple items of the same type (like dynamite), and some speciality items that you'll find out about soon enough!

Timing and coordination are key in this game that pits you against the clock as you race to reach your $ goal!

    Extremely Addictive!

    This game is a blast - you'll like it! It's similar but not identical to the old Flash Gold Miner game. The main differences are that you can buy stuff during the level, instead of at the end of the level, and the levels are independent of each other (you don't get bumped back to stage 1 when you lose, as in the original version of Gold Miner).

    fun game, lot of reply potential

    I enjoyed this one a lot. It gets a bit frustrating when you get to about level 20, but when you figure out how to use the store items effectively, the levels are passable. So I guess I'd call this "challenging yet fun".

    I never played the original Gold Miner game, so I can't really compare, but overall this app is definitely one to keep. It has a lot of replay value because you can keep trying for higher scores and such, and there are no ads or upsells, which is nice.

    Poor imitation

    I thought this would be like the original Gold Miner but each level is self contained. This really makes the game choppy and not much fun.
