Oregon Trail American Settler [by Gameloft]

new free premium game coming soon...

Following the “clone” nature of the games that have taken them this far, Gameloft has just revealed The Oregon Trail: American Settler – a pretty clear attempt to recreate the perennially popular FrontierVille on mobile devices. Unlike most cookie cutter releases that clutter the App Store, American Settler has something unique going for it – an already established gaming franchise, right there in the title. People have loved The Oregon Trail for 40 years (yes – the game actually predates personal computers!), and considering the nature of the story (people travelling across the country to settle in the west), it seems like the perfect license to attach to a FrontierVille clone.

We’ve had a chance to go hands on with The Oregon Trail: American Settler before its release, and while the homage to FrontierVille comes through loud and clear, the game also features a few elements that harken back to the original Oregon trip. For example, players will need to make decisions about major crises that happen to the town.
