Is it good / fun / worth it? Is "Gold Rush" hard to get?
This game looks interesting to me, but it seems not quite as popular as other indi games...
So I would like to know, is it good, fun and worth it? And how difficult is the "Gold Rush" achievement - always forcing myself to get every (possible) achievement...

it's good, it's fun (almost) and definitly worth it, but gold rush is pretty hard to get. most of the levels are ok and not too hard, but some are quite tricky. you can skip these levels, but then you don't get the golden medals which you need for the achievement

€dit:
ok, I see, that you have already some really hard achievements (gratz!) so its really ok for you to get the gold rush

To counterpoint Day's opinion. I dont find it fun at all. It looks nice and the physics are okay, but in general, I don't really find it fun. It feels like a tech demo made into a puzzle game, and yes it's very challenging, but I never feel a sense of success when I do complete a level nor do I truly understand how I would do better or worse at it. If you were after "fun", there are a ton of altenatives Mercury is a similarly based idea. But here, it just seems unpleasantly challenging. I found the camera to be annoying too, and dont like the trial and error gameplay.

Of course it's worth it. The type of the game mouse in one hand, beer in the second one
Just got all the achievement, got to say:

If you are not extremely patient, do not try it !!
Its horribly hard and abusive....

This game got a great concept but ruined by extremly awful execution, the inhuman maneuverability is nightmare....

Gold Rush on some of the later levels is frustratingly hard. I'm stuck on the Alloy and Thermo-moulding levels at the moment. Spent a couple of hours going nowhere fast.

It wouldn't be so bad if the physics were a bit more predictable, but you can execute the exact same moves five times in a row and end up with five different outcomes. Too much randomness.

This game is worth it because of the "sandbox" mode (named "Laboratory"). Although the gold medals do help you unlock stuff for said mode, it is not worth it to try, because the medal you get depends on your time and the amount of liquid that you got to the end. (If you take more time, the amount of liquid you need is raised, making it harder to get the gold medal. But sometimes, its only about the time you took.) I think it's better to get Silver / Bronze medals first, THEN go back to the levels you didn't get Gold on and get gold there.)

Is it possible to get all achievements and particularly Gold rush in normal difficulty?

By now I presume you have your answer. But here's my input in case:

Within the first week I got 14 achievements and 31 gold (normal), 13 gold (extreme.)

GOOD LUCK!! (If you're still playing I'd REALLY like to hear from you.)
