Blue Avenue Media today launched Zombie Gold Rush Miner, an action-adventure puzzle game, in the App Store. The classic arcade-style game features retina display graphics, awesome music and challenging gameplay. The goal: help Gold Miner Steve dodge zombies and giant spiders to mine gold to make apps.
Interesting concept, for sure, and certainly one that makes the original gold rush of the 1840s and 1850s decidedly more modern. Zombie Gold Rush Miner has players test their reflexes by using the joystick to run Steve over platforms and up and down ladders. Then, they must shoot zombies and spiders using Steve’s light helmet.
First, find Steve’s gold pick axe and mine all the gold from the platforms so the gold falls into the mine carts at the bottom of the screen to complete each level. Mine gems to purchase upgrades in the game store. The game features a two player mode where you can challenge your friends and other Game center users to play through the Game Center. Share your high scores with your friends on Facebook and Game Center. It has easy classic arcade controls: Joystick and one shoot button. Give this game a try and you will be glad you did.
The Zombie Gold Rush Miner story focuses on California’s Bay Area. San Francisco was the heart of the original Gold Rush, and more than 160 years later it is now the heart of the app world. These two events are closely linked in Zombie Gold Rush Miner.
Most people don’t realize that currently, under the city of San Francisco, there are gold miners that mine gold used to make the great apps we all use everyday. It’s a very secret underground world that not many people have been able to see until now. Join this underground world of gold mining in the game: Zombie Gold Rush Miner.
In the game you will help miner Steve mine the gold to make great apps. After you complete each level you will be given a chance to download the app that was made from the gold that you helped Steve mine.
You will swipe and tap to help guide Steve through the mines, over platforms and up and down ladders. You will have to find Steve’s gold pick axe and mine all the gold from the platforms so the gold falls into the mine carts at the bottom of the screen.
This is no easy task, because also living in these mines are zombies and giant spiders that do not like Steve mining the gold from their home. They chase Steve around the mines but luckily these zombies and spiders do not like light so it only takes one flick from Steve’s trusty light helmet to stun them long enough for Steve to run away.
This is a very challenging, action-packed adventure puzzle game based on classic game play. See where you rank with Game Center integration. Buy more lives and helmet light flashes in the game store.
