1. I always enjoy your reviews, but I loved this one as this is one of those games I also used to play a lot back in my youth… I love Sierra games in general, and you're right… this one is quite overlooked.
    Probably because it isn't part of a series, as most well known Sierra games are.

  2. It's one of my favourite games too. I recently played it again to take screen shots and it's such a richly detailed game. The fact you can play it three times to get to California is also a major plus.

    Also, the music from Gold Rush's intro plays longer and is better synced to the animation when you play at the normal 2.8Mhz speed of a stock IIGS.

  3. Another GS/OS tip. You can turn of that flashing icon in the top right hand corner of the screen. This is from Twilight II, yeah? If you open Twilight's CDEV, you'll find a checkboxed preference to turn this feature on or off. Why you'd want it on, I don't know 🙂
