I don’t know what it is about online gaming sites lately.

Both Kotaku and GamesRadar have been less than kind in their opinion of the edutainment classic, Oregon Trail. While it’s certainly antiquated by today’s standards, it still retains a good deal of charm, and the updated Gameloft version is a very nice upgrade. Is it a bad game? Certainly not. They must have hated computer class in grade school.

But now we get So Long, Oregon.

It certainly adds a previously missing action element to the game, as you make your wagon and oxen do flips off of mountains and shooting at wild animals without getting out of your covered wagon. You also still get typhoid, so all frontier related diseases remain seemingly intact.

For two bucks, I may have to check this out. If anything, so I can backflip my wagon off of Chimney Rock.
