Oregon Trail for Android 

You crazy kids can have your newfangled openGL 3D games -- I'm going back to 1985 to play some Oregon Trail and shoot me some squirrel. We sat down with developer Gameloft for a few minutes at CTIA and gave it a spin. Check it out after the break.

OMG how soon will this be on the market, this is so going to be worth 2-3 bucks most games are.

Wasn't Gameloft the same company three mos ago that said that they were not going to continue with Android because it was not worth it to them?

MowDownJoe says:

I think so, though its not like they put out anything quality on the market. (Edit: Just checked their collection... Some decent stuff. I was expecting crap like Brick Breaker.)
Must get Oregon Trail.

AllGood says:

Where's the bar code for this i want it and want it now. Just the other day i was wishing this was on Android

redman213 says:

LOL? I've had this game for a month or two now and its actually kinda hard(BORING).

Droid_Moment says:

I haven't played this game back since 1999 when I was still in Grade school when all the schools were populated by Macintosh

tada1096 says:

Is this just another game for 1.6 or higher.

JohnnyACE562 says:

I want.


Did Gameloft mention if they were going to start porting their other games like HAWX or NOVA?

DrewCSchultz says:

Not to complain or anything, but this is the exact same game that my friend had on his motorola sliver, like two years ago. Like I said, not complaining, as I would love to see some for games made for Android.

You have died of dysentery.

foghorn67 says:

It's in the app store. You guy must have been searching "Oregon Trial". That's a boring game about a small town divorce lawyer.

drathos says:

It doesn't show up when I search for 'Oregon Trail', 'Oregon', or even 'pub:Gameloft' on my (stock, non-rooted) Droid.

sylvan says:

Maybe you are searching for 'free' only? Barcode at

Chris McKay says:

Well, it looks like it's only for 2.0 and later devices. I scanned the QR code on my MyTouch and the market told me that it wasn't found.

Chris DSM says:

It's not just for 2.x. I can't find it with my Nexus either. Looks like they pulled it from the Market.

jms67 says:

I scanned on my stock droid and still no luck.

jmelinte says:

I just tried the Androlib barcode on my Nexus One, and the market still couldn't find it :(

Is there anyone besides me that kind of wishes for at 8bit edition to come out?

Now thats how remember Oregon Trail. Back when Pappa Bush was president, the only computers were in the ONE computer lab that your class got to use for 1 hour a week, and lets not forget they were all Apple IIgs with a group dot-matrix printer. . . I miss Hyperstudio, Number Munchers, and the best drafting program of all time, Logo Plus.

Man, who am a kidding. . . things are WAY better now.
