Your timing must be just right to grab the treasure with your claw and reel. You need to be fast and accurate to meet your goal before the timer runs out.

HOW TO PLAY.  Game play is simple, but you need to concentrate. Use your "claw and reel" to mine diamonds, gold, and other treasures out of the earth.

The claw swings back and forth automatically. To drop the claw, press the Down Arrow key on your keyboard.

If you drop the claw in the wrong direction, press the Left Arrow key to quickly pull it back up. This doesn't work if you have an item in the claw.

Press the Up Arrow key to toss dynamite (if you have any).

Once the claw has grabs something, the item is reeled up automatically. Heavy objects like rocks and large pieces of gold are heavy and take more time to reel up.

Between levels, you can buy items from the shop keeper that can help you mine faster and more efficiently. The price of each item varies depending on the level, and not every item is available every time.

  • DYNAMITE. Very useful for blowing up rocks. Rocks are not worth much, so you may not want to waste time reeling it up if you accidently snag one.

    With a rock on your reel, press the Up Arrow key to toss the dynamite and blow up the rock.

  • STRENGTH POTION. I always buy these when available. Because it makes you stronger, this potion lets you reel up large gold nuggets and rocks much faster.

  • LUCKY CLOVER. Increases the value of items you might find in grab bags on the next level.

  • ROCK COLLECTOR BOOK. Triples the value of rocks for the next level.

  • DIAMOND POLISH. Increases the value of diamonds on the next level.

Some of the items are more expensive than others, and the prices vary at different levels. The Strength potion is almost always worth buying, though.

At higher levels of this Gold Miner claw game, you'll see explosive barrels among the treasures. Try not to set off explosions near gold or other valuables, as the valuables will be destroyed in the blast.

However, it may sometimes be useful to intentionally explode a barrel so you can access diamonds and gold located in deeper in the ground.

You might see other relatively worthless items in the ground, such as long bones and skulls. Leave these alone and go for the treasure.

Besides gold and gems, there are often grab bags that you can reel up. The grab bags contain useful items such strength potions or varying amounts of money.

And if you see any groundhogs with diamonds in their mouths, be sure to reel them up! Those diamonds are worth a lot of money.

You need to collect the target money or more before the timer runs out.

Your money carries over from one level to the next. If you don't meet the goal for the current level, the game is over.

While this free online Gold Miner game isn't the most intense brain game ever, I still enjoy playing it. It really is very good for training visual perception and concentration.
