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.

  1. Just o.k.!
    by Leona D., Canada - Dec 5th 2017

    Sometimes confusing to play. There are no continual instructions throut game to help you. I like it but not very intriguing most times. Movements of characters are too stiff.

  3. Old game, new graphics
    by Vanfogel, Finland - Jan 16th 2017

    Old pixel version was a classic Sierra game with some tricky puzzles, but still it was pretty short game, about 2-4 hours of play. Now game has come back with new graphics, but with still same content as the old version. Somehow this is slower, 'cause all the spoken dialog and the character moves lazily by mouse clicking across the screen. Well, still it's very entertaining, but you should buy this game it when it's 70%-80% sales, 19,99$ it's quite high price for so old game.
