Long time fan of the series, and for free, I'm willing to give it a go. Looks somewhat intriguing, not to mention the very small file size.

This is truly lame. What a great game Oregon trail was when first released on the iOS. At the end of the game I wished for a sequel that let you do more and live the settled life but never like this. Freemium games really are like vampires sucking the life outta gamers.

sigh, it's a shame that such a classic game has been changed into a Smurf's Village game.

When I open it up it just hangs at the "checking for updates" screen, then times out and asks me to try again. Anyone else having this issue?

i was playing the game for a bit, but then it went checking for updates and crashed. now it crashes every time on startup when checking for updates and if i try and reinstall the game, it still just crashes on startup.

Edit: now it works. must have been launch day problems with dlc.
