Macworld writes: "The titular educational/adventure game for generations of gamers has finally come to the iPhone. The Oregon Trail first premiered in 1971 and has gone through many editions, with the latest now on the iPhone platform thanks to the developers at Gameloft. The object of the game remains the same as it always has: lead your party of settlers from Missouri to Oregon in 1848. You'll be in charge of ensuring their survival by making decisions on how to travel, avoid danger, and stay healthy. I'll admit that I was hesitant to review this latest version of Oregon Trail-how can you update a classic without the usual pitfalls of unoriginality or offending its legions of fans?"
