Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Mining Gold in California! I absolutely LOVE this game! It's so easy and so fun and so addicting - when the free demo ended my reaction was - "NO! NOT YET!". THAT is my personal "wow" factor which indicates ....... this game is a KEEPER! This is a great game for beginners because you get instructions in every level. You need to build up the town - which is so much fun - using the stars you earn from playing the game. Playing the game is easy - you get a task list at the bottom of your screen and then just do what it says - cut down trees for wood, harvest fruit from the bushes, find places to explore, build mines and sawmills and when you complete the level, keep your stars until you earn a few or use what you earn each level by building the town (build houses, church, dig trenches, remove rubble). Again, this game is great for beginners or anyone who likes to build. Play the relaxed mode and whenever you need some stress relief or just want to feel good, go play this game. It's a definite keeper in my book and I will be purchasing it. I recommend everyone try this amazing game. You may just find yourself digging for gold in California too! Happy Gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rush For Gold, California This game will not let you stop playing it. The action in this game is far better than the last in the series, more control of the game an less hang ups over having to control every thing with the mouse an such. Gold Rush Alaska is also a great game, but this one has it beat in many ways although I still play both of them at least once a day for hours on end. I love them, if that is goofy, so I am just goofy, 65 an proud to be still aliveso4 dlt, sa tx.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Series!!!! I own the Alaska game of this series and really love it. This next one in the series is even better. I love the fact that there is a relaxed mode without timer and the graphics are very nicely done and clear. I like the added bonus of building a little town and upgrading the houses in it even tho there aren't a great deal of them or very much detail in what you can buy but it's still an incentive and is a nice extra at the end of each level. There are some improvements made in this one since the previous Alaska game which are much appreciated; for example, for places like the fishermans tent and gold diggings you don't have to continually click on them to get the resource, you can stick a worker there and he'll stay there until it's depleted. The previous Alaska you could not do that so that improvement is great. All in all, it's a very enjoyable game, cute characters, nice clear graphics and a little town to improve. Any game with a relaxed mode I usually instantly buy. So thank you devs!. I hope to see many more Rush for Gold games in this series. One of my top favorites definitely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found gold! I loved the original Rush for Gold: Alaska so I had a feeling I would enjoy this one as well and I did. The games are very similar but then again many franchises are like that. It has two modes of game play, timed and relaxed. Also one unusual characteristic is it let you decide whether to play a male or female character. The game play itself was fun and not overly challenging. I like games that are not too difficult myself. I think this game is ideal for children and adults like myself that enjoy a nice relaxing game. There is gun play in the game but the characters never shoot anyone, they just shoot into the air to scare them away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gold Rush I have just finished the game so my review is based on the whole game. I always play in timed mode, but the game has an untimed mode as well. Though I had to repeat a few levels to get three stars, I don't believe even untimed-mode fans would have too much trouble with the timed mode. I love the graphics on this game. The visuals are clear and easy to see. Overall, I spent a couple of pleasant evenings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing and fun after a hard day This is a time management / adventure game which has an untimed mode for simple relaxing fun after a day of work. I could play this type of game all day. Resources are limited, so one has to plan to some extent, but for the most part it is mostly easy fun. Sometime in the past I have played another game by this group and I found that the game play was very simple because of that past experience. There are some catastrophes, but they are far fewer that several recent games where the sudden, unexpected calamity destroys all of your planning. I like this far better. I recommend this game as relaxation in the untimed mode. I cannot say how hard the timed mode is, because I doubt I shall ever play it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very entertaining and well thought out At first I thought this would be one of the typical "Road to Rome"-type games. The basic principle is the same - you run around gathering recources and constructing or repairing buildings, but there are some nice little ideas that give a fresh touch to the genre. You can construct buildings which provide you with resources like wood or food regularly, but the supplies are limited and after a while, the buildings stop producing. So in some levels, there is some planning involved or you might find yourself without resources. The tasks are entertaining and in later levels, completement of tasks might lead to new tasks popping up, so don't be so sure that you have as much time left as you thought. There are some variations in how to reach your goals - do you buy food or wait for it to grow, do you build a production building or not. The game is (on times mode) sufficiently fast-paced, the trial hour went by really quickly. A very enjoyable TM.
