GoldWalker is the first adventure strategy game you can play while going about many of the activities in your daily life including walking and exercising.
In GoldWalker you’re a miner 49er and you lead a mining expedition into the Sierras during the California Gold Rush. In this walking powered adventure game you stake your claims, hire workers, buy equipment, and find your fortune.
The goal is to travel from destination to destination on the map between towns & mining camps where you find workers and tools and three different types of mines where you extract gold while avoiding bandits and claim jumpers. To move around in the game world you need to walk in the real world.
To play you select a character and the position of the phone (hand, bag, or pocket, etc) to record activity. Then choose a destination and you’re off! The accelerometer measures your physical activity and translates that into movement of your miner and his mining party of mules, horses, guards, and miners.
Do you have what it takes to make the right strategic decisions, to go the extra mile (literally!) and get the gold from the hills of California to the bank? Can you make the biggest fortune possible before time runs out?
A special mode let’s you stockpile your walking to use later in gameplay.
GoldWalker is brought to you by the team at Humana Games for Health, Totally Games, and Digitalmill.
Highly recommended for fans of exergames, health and wellness apps, fitness apps, and strategy games.
