About this game

In 1988, Rush appeared with Gold! in one of the most comprehensive adventure games of the 1980s. Now, the fondly remembered game, Gold Rush! has been developed anew, to today’s highest standards. No aspect of modern gaming has been overlooked. You can experience the famous California Gold Rush with high-resolution graphics, speech synthesis, a superb sound track and modern user interface features. Optimized game-flow will enhance your traveling and interactions with other characters of the period.
Gold Rush! takes you back to the year 1849, when gold was discovered in California. It was certainly one of the most exciting times in American history. Gold Rush! includes the three routes tens of thousands took to the gold regions. Become Jerrod Wilson and experience each trek as you travel from New York to California.

Whichever route you decide to take, you will see many historical sights. Try going overland across the Great Plains and huge mountain ranges, crossing the Isthmus of Panama, or rounding Cape Horn on the tip of South America. If you survive and arrive at Sutter’s Fort, the adventure is still only half over! Many other puzzles remain to be solved before you achieve your goals in California.

• Far more than 130 pre-rendered images and animated scenes
• Three different approaches
• High quality voices in English, texts in English and German
• New recorded music
• Subtitles in English or German (Point & Click!)
• Optimized quests, dead-ends and random-dies
• New intelligent Point&Click control, optimized for touch!

• This game requires 1GB of ram to run. On some devices with 512MB it will not work.
• This game is optimized for devices from 7", because the small details are better visible and better to control. But it runs also on smaller devices.

This game doesn't contain any form of in-app purchases or advertisings!

Well, it's a classic still and not the best of classics for the era during it's debut at that. But in it's heydey it was a decent game. In 2022, tad outdated, but I fared fairly well using a stylus pen on this one. Personally, I wanted to try Gold Rush 2 and heard online reviews that Gold Rush 2 didn't beat the first version. Classic itself means you can't go wrong buying Gold Rush Anniversary Edition. Plenty walkthroughs

The active areas of interactive objects are tiny for a phone and I think they are also glitchy or something. It's really hard to activate these objects 😐

This game is impossible to play on a small phone. It was way easier to play with the command lines when I was a kid.
