oregon trail for Amiga?
« on: February 07, 2016, 08:33:46 PM »
So my wife requested that if I found the game oregon trail for the Amiga she would enjoy playing so after some searching it does seem like it was made for the Amiga but I was not able to find a download of it.
Any ideas if it's available anywhere?

I've never seen an Amiga version of it. The Apple II version should run well on an emulator.

The apple 2000 emulator program requires at least a 6820 to run so a stock A2000 is not going to run it sadly :(
I looked into that option but my 4000 is not my main gaming Amiga.

Or play one of the honest-to-god originals directly in a browser:

If you are going to emulate it why not emulate a commodore product like a commodore 64 with VICE 64 or CCS 64.  Oregon Trail Is definitely on the C64.  I have an original c64 Oregon trail that came with my C64, it has two other game as well like a fur trapping game (about the French in the St Lawrence seaway and another I cannot remember.  All the games were North American history games.  It Probably has Apple II, CoCo (or TRS 80), VIC 20, Atari 400/800, and Ti 99/4A versions.

You also need Lemonade Stand while you are at it.  I think this may go back as far as PET computers.

Was never made for the Amiga.

Grab the Apple version and just download AppleWin on a modern platform, eg.,  Windows or Mac.

Unless you are hellbent on the original feel of a Apple 2 or C64 keyboard under your fingers, emulators work just fine.

From WikiPedia:  Android; Apple II, iOS, Macintosh; BlackBerry; Commodore 64; DOS; Facebook; Java ME; Nintendo DSi, Nintendo 3DS, Wii; Windows, Mobile, Phone 7

Avoid the tablet/phone versions.  I'm not big on using original HW to play oldie games, but this game really blows on a tablet.  It's like watching paint dry twice.  Or find yourself an HP 2100 / emulator and play the original version.  The game was originally released in 1974, after all, via MECC.

Wow! I had no idea that Oregon Trail went back that far. Still a favorite!

Games Nostalgia (really cool site) has it and it's ready to run on either Mac or PC. The emulator is built in - just double click and go.

The version offered by GamesNostalgia is the 1992 version, officially  released for Windows3.1 but actually working on MS-DOS. This version  offers much better graphics compared to the original MS-DOS version of  1990.

All their games work this way but may initiate with a different emulator, i.e. Amiga, Mac, Dos, Win... what have you. NO emulator required! :)

Tell the wife you need a CPU upgrade to run oregon trail on on the C64 or Apple II emulators :)

Back in the mid-90s the store I worked for was selling an updated Windows 95 and Mac release of "Oregon Trail" for $10.  We had stacks of the CDs and I was the only one who moved any of them, mostly because I was familiar with the original game we played in school on the Apple II.

Years later I regretted never having picked one out for myself.

No kidding, that was/ is a classic game. I ended up getting an Apple IIGS so I am not trying to find the actual game to run on the Apple.
