Japanese developer Mixi today finally sees the launch of Gold Rush Battler after being delayed from its initially planned launch two weeks ago. This latest entry to the Monster Strike series is a four-player PvP title that combines board game mechanics with card building.
Gold Rush Battler has players taking turns to spin the roulette and move along a Monopoly-like board. Much like its contemporaries, the aim of the game is to end with the highest amount of coins after a set amount of turns, where the key to victory lies in taking control of squares by defeating monsters.
Players can either deal damage to the monsters inhabiting the different squares, as well as challenge other players to steal their squares. The game also features over 300 cards upon release and most of the illustrations take direct reference from its original Monster Strike game.
