Yep, I remember that game. Used to play it in Elementary school (1986-1992), along with Number Munchers, Word Munchers, and Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego.
The only thing I hated about Oregon Trail was the fact that no matter what, seems your entire party would still die off before reaching your destination. ><
My favorite part of the game, though, was the hunting portion. I never could shoot anything. lol
Just to think, that's when computers actually used
floppy disks, literally. Call me old-fashioned, but I liked those better than the ones we have now, because I've never once had a problem, like the disk getting stuck in the drive, not like with the diskettes we use now.
Man, I used to LOVE that game! I actually have an Apple II emulator program so that I can play the actual old school version on it, complete with the crappy hunting! The newer versions just didn't do it for me.
Wow!! Mind sending me that program, along with the game? I've been looking for this for a good while so that I could show it to my younger cousin.
