In this Facebook-branded beta edition, you're taken to real world locales like Arizona, California and Mexico to search for gold and treasure. The gameplay is nearly identical to its predecessor, tasking you with timing the strikes of your claw just right to grab the gold. You can also buy dynamite which can destroy undesirable loot like coal and rocks that will snag up the line. The goal is to snag as much gold as possible before the timer runs out, which can be tough if you get miss too many times or grab one too many duds.
With the money you make, you can buy upgrades like increased pull strength and laser guided claws. As you progress, you can share your progress and achievements as well as gifts to friends. And don't worry too much about grabbing too many bones, rocks and coal. Gold Miner World's unique crafting feature makes use of those otherwise rubbish items.
