Now is your chance to own your own gold mine! Become a pioneering, gold mining tycoon and create a frontier Boom Town. The hit online game is now available to play anywhere, anytime.
Wild West charm meets high tech explosives in this mash up quest for gold and glory.
Start your days with a little capital, a small truck and the dream of building an empire where the streets are paved with gold. You'll need strategy and cunning to find the best mining spots, manage your running costs and time the gold market to hit the big time.
Grow your mining enterprise well and you'll be able to expand your business into city planning, building saloons, shops and parks to boost your wealth. As you build, settlers will flock to your town pursuing their own slice of the thriving economy, building homes and communities around your businesses.
Soon your town will take on a life of its own, booming out of control. When settlers desperate for a piece of the action start setting up camps near your mine, you may have to make tough decisions. Let them settle, take their taxes and mine elsewhere or evict them swiftly with well placed explosives, the choice is yours.
