Under rating threshold (show) For those who can't move their truck, one drives their truck by using either their WASD or cursor keys. If one still can not drive their truck (which rarely happens), refresh the page. For those who still can't drive their truck, you might want to click the Option button on the upper right and adjust your Performance Settings. If you need to restart the game, keep in mind, that the game automatically saves at the screen where you sell your gold after collecting the gold, so you will need to repurchase your explosives (and do whatever else you did since that point). Remember this if you purchased your upgrades and/or improvements before buying your explosives and then don't have money left for those needed explosives (simply press Quit on the upper right and exit the game). (Part 2 continued …)

Under rating threshold (show) … For those who wonder which holes are depleted and which are not, this is what I do: I simply use a piece of paper to keep track of where I have made holes, using circles for the holes, then I mark a line through them when they are depleted. (There are a vast number of alternatives to this I am sure.) If your gold flew to the edge of the town, try going to the edge, then using a combo of buttons to get what is otherwise just barely out of reach (e.g., if you are at the bottom left of your area, use the up and left buttons simultaneously). This method does consume your fuel faster, so if you have time limitations, be strategical as where to drive. None of these are real game strategy suggestions, but I tried to answer many basic questions. Hopefully this information helps.

Under rating threshold (show) No way to see which areas are depleted permanently, most of the gold I get is around the edges (not even close but propulsion makes it close) and flies out of the screen never to be seen again, and the best sign pops up over depleted holes just because I pulled an awesome on it last time I blew it up and somehow depleted with one basic $75 bomb. One star.

Under rating threshold (show) Drive through a wooded or hilly area? That's crazytalk. Drive right through a church or a pond or a water tower? No problemo.

Under rating threshold (show) So I kept wondering what these weird little burning shrub things were, and I kept blowing them up to get them out of my way. I don't know how many I blew up before I realized they were little campsites.

Under rating threshold (show) Why my population is 132, while I have completed %46 of the game? I think my way of playing the game is wrong. The achievement says 2500 pop, 2500!!

Under rating threshold (show) I got to 47kg after a slow and repetitive 30 mins. Bought an upgrade that left me with 10$ and no explosives. Rip game? Tried to start a new game. New games gold earning don't add to achievement count, so I'd have to start again and get 50 more. No thank you.

Under rating threshold (show) It's a pretty cool and interesting concept, but the actual gameplay is both confusing and repetitive. Also there seems to be A LOT of bad spots which really feels penalizing. Overall I think a game should have a good balance of rewarding to keep the player interested. Now I might buy the more expensive explosives but end up not getting anything. That's just not fun.

Under rating threshold (show) From Update: "If you have trouble driving your truck, click the cog icon at the top right and try switching off the particle effects and lowering the quality to medium. It seems high quality with particle effects can be too much for some machines."

Under rating threshold (show) Wow, I think the gold values are REALLY old on this game. The last time gold was only worth $1000 pr KG was in the early 1950's. As of today, the current going rate is $41,401.00 pr kg.

Under rating threshold (show) A gold sign say that gold is under a triple wooden house, and because I don't want to kill them (you can) I don't. The next day, the gold sign is under one of my schools, seriously?

Under rating threshold (show) Managed to get Daily Badge WITHOUT moving the Truck (it was bugged) by just landing lucky shots of ore onto the Drop Area. Later you get an upgrade for 5k which greatly extends that area, which is essential for this "method" :P Other than that MAJOR game-breaking bug though, looks cool. 2/5

Under rating threshold (show) Here's a tip, buy plots of land last. When you get your survey upgrade, it shows where gold are randomly, so don't get more land until you get that upgrade

Under rating threshold (show) Something to fix gold that's lost off-screen and inside obstacles should be done. It automatically completes when you get all gold, but not when gold is impossible to get. So it should be deleted or impossible to be impossible. Otherwise wasting time driving around to run out of fuel. A higher magnet factor would also solve this a lot.

Under rating threshold (show) @TrevH1: Place taverns and water towers in empty areas when you're starting to build your town and spread them out, not clumped together. Then invest in your town and refinery early so you don't end up running out of money. And buy your explosives first before spending money on anything else. Once you've bought the vault, save at least 1kg of your refined gold after every trip, so you can sell the entire lot once a Goldboom arrives. I eventually reached 2,505 population after 52 days.
