Gold Miner is out

The PC hit goldminer has just been released for idevices.

$1.99

Gold Miner

Gold Miner is a fun game, and very popular on PC.
Now you have it on iPhone. Download it and enjoy it (but it's not complete like the original on PC, FUN is more important).

Use your claw and reel to mine gold and other treasures out of the earth. Your claw will swing back and forth. Click the screen to lower it. Once it has grabbed something it will reel it up. Heavy objects like rocks and large pieces of gold will be harder to reel up.

Collect the target amount of money by the end of the level. If you don't meet your goal by the end of the level it's, game over. Your money carries over from one level to the next.

If you accidentally blow up everything on a level or you just feel like going on, you can press the "end level" button. If you haven't met your level goal it will be game over.

Thanks for downloading it.

It looks alright. It was fun on the PC, anyone want to TOFTT?

what.

its pretty fun it just looks and feels exacly like a direct port of the pc version. exept for some reason there is no store and if you grab on to a rock you can just tap on the screen again to let it go. so theres no dynamite. this takes some of the fun out of it. also it looked like the 4 dificultie levels only change up the amount of time you have per level.

conclusion: its essentially just a striped down version of the FREE web browser game. i wouldnt recommend it unless you are a ''die hard'' goldminer fan.

TOFTT=Take one for the team meaning that one of us buys it to let the rest know their opinion of whether the game is worth buying or not.
