There are 24 levels to complete throughout Gold Wagon and they'll take place across a wide range of locales. This includes deserts, snow-tipped mountains, lava-filled caverns, swamps and a city that's filled with a ludicrous number of saws.

As you rattle along the tracks in these different places you'll want to be grabbing as many golden nuggets as you can so that you can rack up the highest score possible. There will also be a choice of different wagons too, with each having their own attributes to bear in mind.

The levels start will fairly simple solutions, only have to swipe up or down to ensure you're staying on a track that won't lead you into an explosive crate.
