The Oregon Trail

Thunderbolt Games
1 November 2009
  • Excerpt: For families traveling the Oregon Trail in the mid-19th century, success and survival depended on preparation, keen wits and a good dose of luck. For families traveling the Oregon Trail in Gameloft’s iPhone remake of the classic PC title, success and survival depended on how quickly a cartoonish, bearded settler could collect bunches of berries growing from a digital shrub. Really, the original migrants had no room to complain.

The Oregon Trail Review

Slide to Play
22 March 2009
  • Conclusion: This heavily modernized Oregon Trail doesn't elicit much nostalgia, but is still a fun, breezy play.
  • Pros: Beautifully stylized graphics; lots of minigames; great dialog; legitimately educational.
  • Cons: Annoying load times; not quite interesting enough for older fans of the series.

The Oregon Trail Review

9 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Oregon Trail brought a lot of happiness to my childhood and I can recall always fighting to get into the computer lab in time to be able to play it. Times have changed, though, and playing the original game (good luck finding hardware to run it) seems more of a time sink than anything else.
