Gold Miner Joe is a funny action game in which you have to explore the mine and collect as much gold as possible. The game includes four caves with twelve levels each, all more or less the same, with different levels of difficulty, and exciting bonus levels. It features a nice background music and cool graphics. It is very simple and easy to control, which makes it a game for all ages. You can either use a joystick or the arrow keys to move and the Ctrl key to jump. The objective of the game is collect as much gold as needed to fill the meter at the top of the screen, trying to avoid the Kentucky brothers and other enemies since they can kill you at any moment. You can fight them by throwing stones or use dynamite to blast them, especially when there are many enemies together. A huge disadvantage is that you cannot save your game, so you will have to use passwords to return to the place you were.
It supports Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP or compatible, and allows you to play for 30 minutes.
