San Mateo, California– June 16, 2011– Today, Nintendo DSi™ owners can catch Gold Fever , a shiny new Match-3 game, now available for the Nintendo DSiWare™ service in the Nintendo DSi Shop in North America. Published by TikGames, Gold Fever is available for 500 Nintendo DSi Points™. The game also launched in Europe on February 4, 2011.

Gold Fever is a glittering example of an addictive Match-3 game,” said Alex Tikhman, Co-Founder and VP of Publishing&Business Development at TikGames. “It keeps players coming back for more with its simple controls and an intuitive gameplay mechanic.

In Gold Fever, players must match and clear three adjacent coins of the same color by tapping on one coin to flip it over so its symbol matches those of the coins it touches. When the coins are cleared, any gold tiles behind them are mined. In order to finish each level, players must mine all of the gold. There are also power-ups to aid prospecting players, including the pickaxe that removes any coin, the stopwatch for an extra 30 seconds on the dynamite timer, and the hammer that clears both the coin and gold on a tile.

Gold Fever has been rated E for Everyone by the ESRB and 3+ by PEGI.
