Overall this little piece of nostalgia is what it claims to be, the DOS version (I think) of the complete game. Yeah, yeah you can play it on emulators and in browsers now a days. A physical stand alone product like this is appealing to people of a certain generation.
Well done, mimics the game perfectly. Makes a nice shelf sitter.
Retro look that fits nice in the hand
All the elements are there, and I mean just like the original. To my eyes nothing is left out, no scenes, options, or sounds. It is Oregon Trail except portable. It is way better than that crappy card game that they put out before (You have seen it on the shelf, DO NOT BUY)
They are functional, but "hunting" is a bit more difficult than I remember even when using the arrow keys. Also navigating the Columbia River (late in the game) is again more difficult than I remember. The "D" pad, if you can call it that, could have been better.
For $24.99, its worth it for entertainment value alone. If you remember playing this in the 3rd grade you will love it. If you didn't well you might not understand.
