About

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.Features:
  • Over 130 pre-rendered images and animated scenes in full HD
  • Three different routes west (3 adventures in one game)
  • High quality voices and new recorded music
  • Subtitles in English or German (Point & Click!)

One of my absolute and only favorite Games. Pros:-incredible graphy-changing and emotional Main Stoy-in-app Purchases and Skins VR compatibility-supports the most grateful Memes of the entire Internet-supported by Harambe Cons:-immense Graphics Requirements-you have to weep At the Story-who---the Time passes too fast and you lose all social Contacts while playing this Masterpiece-You regret every past second Of your Life in which you haven't played This Game Summary: In my entire 17 Years at Steam, I've never had a better one Play As this Anime Crossover can enjoy High-Noon Mashup. I have already invested €4,000 and 1739 Hours in this Game but it was all worth it. 5/7 IGN ONE KLARES MUST-HAVE FOR EVERY ANIME LOVER HOW ME

First I give a short summary, for the lazy readers. :) Aterwards I give some more Details. By the way, buying and installation of the game was absolutely fine!! So no problems here! In summary, the game is really nice! The atmosphere is tight with a cool main person Jerrod and nice other characters. The quests are varying and creative. The sounds and especially the voices are authentic and good. The graphics are not the best I've ever seen but for an adventure absolutely ok, especially for the price. Cool in game gimmicks! Find them out! :) Overall I very nice game. In terms of a ranking I would give 9 of 10 points! Well done! :) atmosphere: I nice and authentic atmosphere. I like the Brooklyn feeling and the different places around. The story of Jerrod is told in a nice way. Personally a bit more background story of Jerrod would be nice. But it is also told during the game. The game has really funny gimmicks you can find out! Take a closer look at the horses or the flowers... :) sounds: The voices are different and creative. I am curious if the voices are more western style when moving west... :) I also like the voice of the story teller! Some more (background) music could be nice sometimes (e.g. in the credits), but it is very similar to the Original I think. Quests: The quests are not to tough but also creative. Lets see how they develop during the game. Graphics: The graphics are not the best I have ever seen. But for an adventure it is absolutely ok! Especially considering the price which is not the price of an high end game with 60€. Some more details could be nice, for example in Jerrods house. But the the tracks and the skyline of NY are really nice. This is where i would give a small minus. controls: I think the are a bit different to other games. I like the idea of doing (almost) everything with only one click! After some minutes you get used to it. :)
