It's Time To Die Of Dysentery All Over Again In The New "Oregon Trail" Game
You won't even have to sign up for time in the school computer lab to play it.
Does this image give you a rush of nostalgia?
Or maybe this is the image that causes vivid memories of hunting for meat and pelts with the click of a mouse.
Or maybe this is the image you think of when you hear the phrase "ford the river."
No matter what era you first played The Oregon Trail in, this phrase probably has deep meaning to you:
Well, good news: The best game in your elementary school computer lab can now be played on Apple Arcade.
The mini game tells us a lot about what we can expect from the full game. For instance, we're still making tough choices at the beginning of the journey regarding food and medicine.
The classic conundrum of whether to ford the river or not is still very much in play.
There are also some new decisions that probably didn't show up in your CD-ROM version, like what to do about these bison that are blocking the path.
These new choices can end pretty badly, TBH.
You'll also be faced with who should keep the watch while the rest of the party rests: Billy or Otto?
Word to the wise: Don't pick Billy.
In summary: The computer game you loved as a kid can now be carried around in your pocket. That's certainly a reason to cheer.
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
