I played this when it was first put up on armorgames, and a did like it, but I did not really like how repetitive it got after a while. Also, i was hoping this would have medals when it hit newgrounds considering the achievements in it.

Fun, but tedious after

300-400kg gold.

I feel like at that point you should be able to purchase trucks to go retrieve gold for you as this quickly becomes the most annoying part of the game.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Fun, pretty addictive! Nice game.

My suggestions for improvement: the ability to buy multiple mining trucks after a while. The ability to make towns people work for you (what else are these booming towns doing here?). More dwelling styles for people, like high rise residential buildings, ... (at least I didn't see any, with 2000 people).
