About the Game
In the history of gold mining whenever a miner found some good gold producing ground, it was known as hitting “pay dirt”. With this RTG platform game you can enter the world of the gold rush among gold seeking miners with their lanterns and gold wash pans, sneaky gun-toting bandits, cavernous gold mines, glistening gold nuggets, boxes of dynamite, pick axes and carts full of gold, hard-working donkeys, and feisty dogs. This gold rush game is full of fun and kooky characters, bright and colorful graphics, and exciting banjo music that sounds off every time you hit a prize. You will surely enjoy the fanciful nature of this game.
