Oregon Trail HD, which is an addictive game with an educational twist, has been released in the Windows Marketplace by its developer Gameloft.
The Windows Phone 7 gaming application is one of the highest priced gaming titles in the Windows Marketplace. Although the Oregon Trail HD game comes with a price tag of US $4.99 in the app market for Windows Phone, but it is worth its price. The game is based on the mid-1800s time period as the player travels west along the Oregon Trail with his family. On the way, he gets the opportunity to test his skills in eight mini-games to replenish his food supply or earn money as well as avoid the various dangers (Indian raids, bandits, bad weather, diseases, etc.) that come across the trail. Money is earned by completing tasks or quests, such as providing passage for hitchhikers, delivering packages, etc.
The Oregon Trail HD is a unique strategy and educational game relating the first pioneers’ journey to Western America. It is based on a resource management formula already proven in the U.S., where the game is an actual icon for adults and kids.
