Came also out for:
As a covered wagon party of pioneers, you head out west from Independence, Missouri to the Willamette River and valley in Oregon. You first must stock up on provisions, and then, while traveling, make decisions such as when to rest, how much food to eat, etc. The Oregon Trail incorporates simulation elements and planning ahead, along with discovery and adventure, as well as mini-game-like activities (hunting and floating down the Dalles River).
What I think:
I find it a little bit overrated, but it’s without a doubt still one of the better educational games.
I just wish it wouldn’t be to repetitive and that your party doesn’t get so ill or even die so early in the game.
And if you are wondering from where I got the names from, it is from a TV series known as “Little House on the Prairie”, which is loosely based on the best-selling “Little House”-book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
