Oregon Trail now available for mobile phones

Mobile games developer Gameloft has released its updated version of The Oregon Trail. The game costs $4 (or more, depending on your carrier) and introduces several new gameplay elements to the elementary school classic.

The game now includes five skill-based mini-games, side-missions and random events like bandits. Of course, everyone's favorite gameplay elements like hunting and random outbreaks of disease are still included. Oh yes, Mary will contract diphtheria. A demo is available on the Gameloft site to try before you buy.
