Zynga is being sued over Their New Oregon Trail Game

Remember that game that you used to be able to play on the classroom computer during recess; the one that let you take your band of travelers west across land and stream and against all odds? That’s right, Oregon Trail. Well, the creators of Oregon Trail, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, are now suing Zynga, a company famous for its many social games, for using the name Oregon Trail.

When has zynga made an original game not based off another game. Their entire success is based on improving (I laugh as well at this word) another person's game.

They are like the gameloft of facebook.

Better yet, why not download it and have a bit of fun, instead of watching a crappy video? =P


You'll most likely need DosBox to run it.

There's tons of abandonware games out there, and this site has a really nice collection of them.

Check it out. =) If you do, and need help with using DosBox, just send me a message.

Why do I feel this constant hatred towards Zynga?

radphil4802d ago (Edited 4802d ago )

Maybe because they're mooching off obvious ideas and passing it off as their own? :p

That and the main guy of the company basically said "**** creativity. I'm just in it for the money"

Fragger2k84802d ago (Edited 4802d ago )

Please, drain these leaches of all their money. What they "create" can't even be described as games, if you ask me, and they care nothing about them, nor the people playing.

I played this is elementary school on an Apple computer. I vaguely remember needing to type words to shoot. That was a long time ago. Back then it was all in green or orange I can’t remember which.


Star Wars: Hunters Review | GamingonPhone

Vince Zyle writes "Star Wars Hunters is a really fun game! It’s not as good as other Star Wars games like Star Wars Battlefront 2 but coming from a developer like Zynga who worked on very underwhelming and low-quality titles before, this is a major upgrade.

There’s not much objectively wrong with the game aside from the work needed to make visuals smoother during animations. That’s one of the biggest issues at present alongside frame drops that occur from time to time when there’s too much going on which isn’t too bad but certainly noticeable.

In conclusion, Star Wars Hunters is a game for arena shooter fans who are looking for an action-filled game. Some of the other issues will hopefully be ironed out with future updates."
