Description of Oregon Trail Deluxe

The Oregon Trail, well known road crossing the Rocky Mountains used by the settlers in the 19th century.

MECC made an educational game based on this memorable part on the USA story. The player must cross the oregon trail and fight against the difficulties the settlers had. Hunting for food, trading supplies, survive LOTS of possible deaths (snakes, typhoid, dysentry...).

Should you succeed in your journey, your points will be based on your profession, the number of settlers still alive, your remaining cash and much more.

Oregon Trail was played by a lot of American people born in the eighties and the game stay into memory as one hard, unforgiving and unbeatable game. Some family would eventually play the game together and children in school would even make competition over who got the farthest before dying in the game!

Gwane commented :Who remembers games they played as a kid? I for one remember the only one we played in elementary school, Oregon Trail. It was choppy and by today's standards is something an elementary school student could create, but when I was playing it, it was the most entertaining game available. Now today 40 years after the game was created, kids are still playing it. It was actually created to be an educational experience of how people migrated to the west to settle. Me being on the west myself, found this very significant. I personally would recommend this game to any child as a fun way to get education.

ridley-the-dragon commented :This is an awesome game I just wish they would make a remake. This game is still pretty popular so a remake would probably do pretty well ! I'm imagining the hunting only with mechanics more like a cabelas game only with muskets and with next gen graphics and complex colony building systems, allowing Sim City style colony building, all with next gen graphics on a pc, think about it... And with a free modding tool it would become classic, like ratchet and clank, with mods allowing you to make so that you just farm for food and the hunting mechanics are used for combat with the british or it could be totally remoded to make it a halo colonizing game on different planets instead of to America with the combat i mentioned earlier

Bobbysmile 2015-05-25 2 points

For people wondering how to set it up, use DosBox

Mount the extracted download to a drive in dosbox (mount [drive letter] [directory of extracted download])

Then type [drive letter you mounted to]:

Then type setup, once that runs and closes type oregon.exe

How high of a score do you want? The message 'Game will be scarce is a lie..." and you can trade 1 clothing for 1 ox, making $5, until you are full, and sell all the oxes, and start again... Limitless points. :)

dont look like the oregon trail delux is any different than the first oregan trail by the screenshots, they look the same..i had oregon trailII and thoght the deluxe version could be about the same but doesnt look like it at all.. so guess i will just end up ordering another oregon trail II, it is more life like and real . i think the oregan trail II is the best out of the whole offense to anyone just thought the deluxe version would be similar or maybe even better than the second one...thanks n good work to you all......sandy

lakawak 2014-01-19 0 point

I don't think ridley-the-dragon understand the concept of Oregon Trail. You are ONE family trying to get to land you can homestead. Not a bunch of people trying to colonize a country. You don't stay in an area long enough to farm, or to colonize other areas. You want it to be more like an updated Civilization...but that is nothing like the concept behind Oregon Trail.

For those of you who don't know, there's a similar spin-off called "Organ Trail" that you can get from Desura pretty cheap. Not quite like this (it's a zombie game...) but the closest thing I ever found .

Man, I was the best at this when I was little! I remember in 3rd grade, we had this system in our classroom called "duck dollars" where you got these little fake dollar bills with a duck on them for good behavior and stuff so you could buy computer time or candy or whatever from the teacher. I'd always horde mine and every Friday I'd buy like an hour of computer time and fucking root beer float, and then I'd play Oregon Trail and beat the shit out of it. I was so good at it, my name was at every spot on the high scores list.

igetit 2013-08-22 7 points

Unbeatable? It was unforgiving but not impossible to beat, I did it several times as a kid. The key was to be a good hunter, then you'd always have food and you could sell their pelts i think for more money. But it always came down to the crapshoot of crossing the snake river! Good luck, you're gonna need it!

Beedoo 2013-06-24 7 points

A well-meaning person gave me the Wii remake of Oregon Trail (created as some anniversary project, apparently) and all I can say is that it doesn't hold a candle to the good old Deluxe release I played as a kid.

So happy I can play this again.

... Did anyone else take the game a step further and play-pretend? (lol) My sister and I used to cram playroom furniture around a Little Tikes wagon and "hitch" the handle to imaginary oxen. I think that ended in an argument with a friend over whether she could put the oxen on "autodrive".

*sigh* Good times.

At the top of your Browser window, Press "Tools" and then "Internet tools" and you will run into a tab that lets you set a path for your Downloads. The location where your files save now will be displayed, but you can change it anytime. Hope this helps even though I am sure that this post is old. :)

Hey folks, if you are thinking there is something wrong with the game, I mean that it looks slightly different, like how the things don't pop up with the dun-duh-dunnn sound, it's because that is the Oregon Trail Version 1.2 from 93-96. It is very difficult to find and I am disappointed...

@Flic Montana
Ever heard of the (totally free), awesome and all round butt kicking program DosBox? No? Google it, please. Because DosBox will allow your modern computer to play these old games, by emulating DOS, and even emulating old hardware, like an old soundblaster soundcard! So with DosBox, you can enjoy this game, and all the others you can find on this website.

yeaahhh 2011-07-18 0 point

well no sound...even with messing with the settings and stuff for audio and its not the same, like it doesnt pop up and say, you have dysentery! which is half the fun

Flic Montana 2011-06-24 0 point

Could be fun, but this is just the original game and it isn't compatible with modern Windows. Someone should rework it so that it can.

Actually, this should replace 1 of the 20 crappy card games that come free with Windows. I'd MUCH rather spend an hour playing Oregon Trail at lunch than Hearts.
