Game Review

The Oregon Trail is a computer game originally produced by the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium (MECC) in 1974, designed to teach school children about the life of 19th century pioneers. The game was extremely successful and was released for several other platforms including Apple II in 1985 and PC MS-DOS in 1990.

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).

The version offered by GamesNostalgia is the 1992 version, officially released for Windows3.1 but actually working on MS-DOS. This version offers much better graphics compared to the original MS-DOS version of 1990
