Review and Giveaway: The Oregon Trail: Interactive Game by Red Wagon Games


Red Wagon Games, publisher of interactive entertainment, and game developer DoubleTap Games had us review The Oregon Trail on the Wii system, (also available for Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system.)

We don't use our Wii often for games. We originally bought it for doing the exercises that most Wii's were bought for a few years back, but over time, we lost interest in that, and had only kept our Wii to use for Netflix.It was nice therefore to once again for something other than Netflix.

Gerry enjoyed trying out The Oregon Trail as he loves westerns. He said it had great graphics,and was easy to use without reading any instructions.As I typed away at my computer,I couldn't help but notice the great sound effects and music that accompanied it.

The Oregon Trail was created in 1971 by three student teachers at Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., and immediately became popular throughout Minneapolis public schools. Since that time, the game has gone through a number of editions on a variety of platforms, including Apple II, Macintosh, DOS, Windows and iPhone/iPod Touch.


With The  Oregon Trail , your job is to lead your family across over 2 000 miles of rough terrain from Independence Missouri to Oregon City in the middle of the 19th century.Gerry said it held his interest, and he got lost in it all. I can see the Wii being used again in the near future for more adventures on The Oregon Trail.
( Please note- this is a single player game).

Red Wagon Games would love to give away one of these games in either a Wii or DS platform, to one lucky winner from Canada or the USA. A random draw will be made by Random.org on January 8, 2012 from all entries received.
