The game GoldSearch is like a board game. One to ten players select their start positions and move over the gamefield to find gold. There is only one gold field, which is detected by moving over it. If a player moves over a big bomb, the player must return to his start position, which is a field with a S icon. The current position is marked as a field with a P icon. A basic move consists of one to six position changes to fields vertically or horizontally next to the current position. The number of position changes is calculated with a random generator. After a move is complete, the player digs deep. Then the player can discover a small bomb, which sends the player back to the start position, a turbo under the earth, which prolongs the basic move with another amount of one to six position changes, or a throw back field under the earth, which sends the player back to the first field of the current move. You find move explanations on the text line above the gamefield. The game only uses mouse commands and no keyboard commands. You can quit the current game with the right mouse button.
