The Oregon Trail
is hitting the road from standard mobile
to a more evolved form on iPhone and iPod Touch. Gameloft is set to make the title -- in which players take their band of settlers from Independence, MI to Willamette
Valley in Oregon -- available on the App Store, either February 28 or March 1. Gameloft
has yet to announce an official price for the game.
This next-gen mobile Trail
has eight "skill-based" minigames, with some using the accelerometer. Of course, the title will also include the standard laundry list of random events and diseases to keep players on their toes. 'Cause, you know, it's just not The Oregon Trail
unless some poor child dies of dysentery.
