iPhone: Oregon Trail, Fieldrunners, or Let's Golf?

Hi,

I'd like to get either Oregon Trail, Fieldrunners, or Let's Golf for the iPhone. Which game do you recommend and why?

Thanks!

Fieldrunners because it has better graphics, and plus it's my preferential gameplay.

+1 for Fieldrunners, it's the IGF mobile best game, beating all other mobile games. It has great graphics and enjoyable gameplay.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

I have both. I love fieldrunners. Oregon trail isn't fun. It looks pretty and the animation is great, but its just not fun. There is no micromanagment like the original, which is what made it fun, so basically its just a montage of mini games while going through a quest you have almost no control over.

Definitely go with Fieldrunners if you're at all in to tower defense or strategy games.

Otherwise, go with Let's Golf if you like cartoony sports games.

The only thing Oregon Trail has going for it is the nice visuals and nostalgia. The other two games outpace Oregon Trail with ease.

Thanks for the quick replies.
I've asked around on Twitter and other forums, and Fieldrunners is clearly the winner.

Any thoughts on Let's Golf?

I personally prefer Let's Golf over Fieldrunners. I highly recommend Let's Golf if TD isn't your favorite genre of game.

Do you like strategy games, TDs or sports games?

C'mon that's a really hard comparison considering they all have nothing to do with each other.

Fieldrunners. Not only is itf cheaper, you'll get much more replay value out of it.
