Default The Oregon Trail ($0.99 sale) +Lite [v1.7.5 - Retina Display]

The Oregon Trail - $5.99
Lite version - Free

Go and grab it. ^ ^

The first thing anyone familiar with the original game will notice about the iPhone version is its complete (and lovely) graphical overhaul–this does not look like a game from the ’70s. The second thing one notices is a reduction of the number of very minute details that go into setting up an expedition. As the game’s producer explained, it can take a good 10 minutes to fully equip a wagon train at the start of the original, which is not conducive to a typical on-the-go gameplay scenario. The developers have, instead, chosen to present various fully outfitted wagon “packages” that can be easily selected, allowing the mobile gamer to quickly hit the trail. I do not feel, after having spent time with the iPhone version, that these abbreviations lessen the game, but rather, simply make it feasible for a mobile platform.

I might, once the price drops to a reasonable amount. $5.99?! Good luck with that.

I doubt you're going to see many reviews, at that price point. Not when other (highly?) anticipated games are launching for a dollar or two.

I don't know know about their record (actually, I don't think they drop prices all that often) but I'm sure they'll drop this to something reasonable if no one buys it.

Downloading now.... I loved this game and played it for hours so I am really looking forward to the app. If I can stay awake, I will post my first impressions soon.
