Gold Miner Vegas
Good Old Classic
I don't know what version I had on my 6-year-old laptop, but I never beat that game. I beat this version the first time playing, though I had played for several years before buying here. Mindless and relaxing with no mad clicking. The miner's claw swings back and forth and you will click once when the claw is pointed at the treasure you want to reel up. There is about 10 seconds wait time while the miner reels up bigger gold nuggets from the bottom of the screen, which are obviously worth more money, and smaller objects are reeled up quickly. Each level is timed (60 seconds# and you must reel up a certain amount of gold or gems in that time to get to the next level. The levels are random so you cannot predict how much gold will be on any level or exactly which power-up #dynamite, more time, faster reeling, etc.) to buy between each level. Grab bags on some levels could change your standard claw to a super claw or spike claw, and there are various obstacles on most levels which are either just in the way or could make you lose some time. This game will not appeal to anyone who likes a whole lot of action, but appeals to some children and will definitely improve their hand-eye coordination. There is normal, hard and expert modes. This is one of my go-to games when I need to relax both physically and mentally after a particularly trying day.

Gold Miner Vegas Is Absolutely Positively Not For Me
Ewww! I've played some horrendous games in my 58 years of life but this has got to be one of the worst. For me, it is Boring and Monotonous.
Even my 6 year old granddaughter despises this game, "Grandma, this game is STUPID. Uncle Phil should bury this game in his livestock manure pit." My 6 year old granddaughter loves to play a variety of different types of games from Arcade/Adventure to Match 3 to HOGs, even Mahjong so when she does not like a game, it's beyond awful.#
The object of this game is to manuver the cart, pick up gold and other objects and get so many points before your time runs out ... trying to do this however is next to impossible. My granddaughter and I spent one entire hour trying to pass Level One which neither of us were able to succeed at. My granddaughter who is usually quite good at this type of game.
I do NOT recommend this game.

Way too short
Bought this ages ago and now playing it again. I love the game but have to give it a three simply because it is way to short. I can complete the game in less than a couple of hours on the hard setting and this is not even my fav genre. There are other Miner games out there and if BFG bring them here, I recommend that they make them longer!

A game mechanic that never gets old
This game has the same level goal, but it is presented so well in this game. You can collect gold (OF COURSE), rocks, and diamonds. The game gets really hard later on with animals that STEAL THE GOLD FROM THE GROUND! It is hard, yet fun. The shop also has items to help you like diamond polish. Over all this is a game that is great. It does have the same level goal, it presents it well.
