Survive the dangers of the long journey, from raging rivers and bear attacks to sickness and starvation in this renowned historical adventure.

• All of the decision-making and problem-solving fun of the original game, plus additional features to take the Oregon Trail experience even further than before.

• 8 skill-based mini-games, some using the Accelerometer: hunting, fishing, wagon repairing, river crossing, rafting, telegraphing, gold panning, and berry picking.

• Random events such as disease, bandits and hitchhikers faced by the real pioneers increases the challenge.

• Side missions add more depth to your journey, and affect your westward trek.

• Completely updated with colorful and animated graphics.
