    No 14-karat here—Gold Diggers is as common and utilitarian as iron.

    Overall, that’s the highest kind of compliment you can give for Gold Diggers, a game in a genre that often relies heavily on in-app purchases and cheesy grinding schemes to bring players back. If that’s enough to entice you to try another endless runner, then Gold Diggers has a lot to offer.

    Gold Diggers is fun in short bursts, but slow progression and a general lack of the titular gold means most players won't keep digging for long.

    Gold Diggers was a better title than I thought it was going to be when I first downloaded it onto my home screen. It’s worth giving a try if you’re looking for a new title that offers up some fun, fast-twitch action.

    There’s little to complain about with Gold Diggers, and little touches like your hit points being communicated by the number of cars left on your drilling machine, or the perturbed facial expression of your anime-esque character when you run directly into a wall will charm you for the duration. None of the limitations with the genre are solved here, but you’ll still strike some gold with your time.

    Gold Diggers is promising at first glance, but digs itself into a repetitive hole fairly quickly making it one to skip.

    Gathering coins and avoiding obstacles in an endless level; we’ve done it a bunch of times, yet it still manages to stay addictive. Gold Diggers approaches it in a slightly different way that makes it fun. Unfortunately the rest of the game is too poorly executed to offer endless fun.

    In other words, there's just enough that's good about Gold Diggers to overcome its occasional frustrations. It won't revolutionize the genre, but if you can overcome a few control niggles, there's a decent game to be enjoyed here that packs in all the gameplay staples we've come to expect from the genre.

    Fast paced and addictive, Gold Diggers is an arcade blast that ticks the right boxes.

    Taking a little while to get going, Gold Diggers is a fun if slow building Endless Digger.
