Boom Town

Author Comments

Join the Gold Rush and get rich, by the careful (or some times indiscriminate) use of high explosives. Upgrade your rig, refinery and explosive power.

Choose your starting plot, buy explosives, liberate the gold and use the proceeds to build your town.

Perfect for casual, hardcore players and office workers. No time limits, no pressure, do everything at your own pace.

Can you build the ultimate Boom Town?


Use mouse to buy upgrades, explosives and build your town.

Use mouse to lay explosives.

WASD or Cursor Keys to scroll the map.

WASD or Cursor Keys to drive your truck and collect the gold ore.


Excellent concept. however i think there should be some use to the boom town population IE hiring on truck drivers for npc gatherers to gather your minerals or something, perhaps an option to put some mines on a gold spot for a slower residual gold, also employing population.

Biggest complaints: Too often do the gold deposits near the edges of the screen shoot large chunks of gold ore, items, gems, etc, off the edges of the screen. By the time i had all my upgrades maxed out and had purchased the second lot, I had nothing to do but mine gold and wait for the new town buildings to unlock.

Personal two cents: i think it's a good basis for an excellent game, but instead of collecting the gold from the blasts, i think the blasts should open up the ground so you can build mines. And the mines producing ore to be picked up and dropped off at the depots. Of course that would alter the gameplay dramatically and it of course isn't the original intended vision of your game. then again, that's why this portion is labled "personal two cents", as it's just my own opinion.

Mining Games are awesome!

I wish this had medals to unlock, but apart from that a really great game. A good mix of skill and strategy

This is a great game. i played it before :P

Great game, would be even better, if there would be a small descripion for the explosives and maybe a more detailed data on the upgrades. for example: refinery upgarde 2: +5% gold. but even without it its really fun to play
