"Golden Trails: The New Western Rush" is an enjoyable hidden object game. Although there are two level options, you need to first play the adventure or untimed level and earn 50,000 points before the timed level is unlocked. You take the role of Sheriff Jack who has been sent on a vacation to Sunnyvale. However, Jack doesn't like vacations and he soon finds himself investigating a robbery in Sunnyvale. At the start of the game, you have the option to skip the tutorial. This game is a straight hidden object game with no puzzles or exploration. Each location has hidden object scenes that also include sheriff badges that you need to find. This is the most difficult part of the game because you need to find at least 150 badges to unlock the extra gameplay at the end of the game. The extra gameplay lets you search for even more hidden objects in each location. You start the game with five hints but you can earn more by shooting gangsters in special shooting rounds. There is a practice area of the game where you can perfect your shooting skills. In addition to hints, the game includes a strategy guide which can help you locate hidden objects, including the needed sheriff's badges. If you find objects quickly or without using hints, you get bonus points, which can help in unlocking the timed mode. The game has five main areas with several hidden object locations in each area. Finding hidden objects ranges from easy to moderately difficult. Some items are hidden from view and are found by moving other objects while some objects need to be found using inventory items. "Golden Trails: The New Western Rush" is a thoroughly entertaining hidden object game. It has spoken dialogue throughout the game and this adds to the enjoyment, with western sounding voices and good acting. The game provides plenty of gameplay for all levels of users, with an adventure/untimed mode and ample hints for beginners to an advanced, timed mode and extra gameplay for more experienced game players.
