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.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs some fixing
It’s a good game if you’re looking to play something like the original. There are a few glitches. Transitioning between screens is hit or miss, your guy might be there or he might not be and you’re stuck there with no way to pick up where you left off. It’ll let you save it but you come back still stuck in the same screen. This has happened to me twice, panning for gold and then also trying to return to the Fort after panning. It’s a fun game overall but could use some fixing in that regard. You can type command or point and click.
