Better than the original.
The very game you knew and loved as a child is back and better than ever in GameLoft’s newest version of Oregon Trail for the iPhone.
When starting you first must make some choices that will later come into effect as you play through the game. Choose when you want to leave (spring, summer, winter) what type of wagon you want to take (each having their fair share of perks and faults), and also what profession your main character was before departing. Choosing the banker will start you off with more money, choosing the carpenter will make you better at keeping your wagon in perfect shape, or choosing the famer will help make sure you always have food for your travel party.
The goal is simple: make it through a series of forts and checkpoints to get to the end with as many of your travel party still present as possible while hunting, repairing your wagon, and making it past many other obstacles. Each event or obstacle (such as hunting, fishing, repairs, picking food, fighting off wild animals, and floating down the river, panning for gold), is a new minigame to master and each will reward you for completing with food, supplies or money. Other encounters such as fighting off animals, being robbed in the night, picking up hitchhikers, or being chased by bandits are all random events that you can choice to react to and may help or harm you in the end. GameLoft packs so many minigames and interactive events in this game that your journey on the Oregon Trail will never become boring or repetitive. Who knows, you might even run into some historic legends on your way.
There are three different difficulty levels to play on; Easy, Normal and Hard opens up once you beat the game once on either of the beginning two levels. Even the newest to Oregon Trail can play on Normal and have a fair amount of challenge, where Easy is perfect for anyone just wanting to have fun without a whole lot of hardships. While traveling the trail you can pick from three difference speeds; the fastest speed will get you to the next fort or landmark faster, it will also cause more mishaps to happen and your resources will decrease must faster. The slowest speed will open you up to more attacks and take you twice as long to get anywhere. The controls are self-explanatory and your “wagon master” acts as a tutorial throughout the game, popping up here and there explaining new events or minigames.
This game is an excellent retelling of such a classic game and brings back the nostalgia while creating a whole new experience. In this version of Oregon Trail there is always something going on or something to do. This game is perfect for any age and any gamer, from the casual audience to the most hardcore of gamers. GameLoft’s Oregon Trail is a game you will find yourself playing over and over again and enjoying each play through more than the last.
