The screen shots are great! West theme is one of my favorite. Golden Trails: The New Western Rush is gonna be a super hit and it's worth waiting.
P.S. When are you going to release it? is beta available?
I've received the newsletter with beta test. Downloading now!!!
I just finished testing it out and went back and replayed it for a total of 3 times! I LOVE this game and will be buying it (unless I'm one of the lucky ones to win a copy of the game!) LOL The graphics were so clear and beautiful, made me want to live there! lol
'Come on Spring' (when game will be released), which is next month, by the way!
And I just loved how we got hints, that was so cool! (not gonna say as I don't want to ruin it for those that haven't played it yet.
Pros: Unique graphics and music. Gameplay was good, with tough to find objects 'hidden' within the scene. Mini-game felt original and fun.
Cons: List of objects to find was not scrollable, and were unable to click on objects needed later to advance the game.
Comment: I thought the beta for the game was really good. Sometimes the objects 'hidden' behind other objects were tough to find, but that's also what I liked about it. Other Hidden Object games (HOG) made it obvious that 'you need to click here', leaving little use for brain power. I found this a nice challenge, as long as I kept moving the mouse around the screen ever once in a while.
Another thing I like, two in fact, was the achievement and hint system. You had many different objectives ranging from mouse clicking (or lack there of) to how many objects found within a certain time frame. Plus, in order to gain more hints you had to 'shoot' gangsters that popped up in various places throughout scene.
The last thing I found enjoyable was the balance it seemed to provide between being too easy and too hard. So far, the game seemed to find itself on middle ground with me, leaving me wanting to play more. Keeping both my attention and giving me a challenge at the same time.
