Oregon Trail Heading to iPhoneS

Gameloft is preparing to bring the classic edutainment game The Oregon Trail to the iPhone and iPod Touch.

The game will feature all of the decision-making and problem solving of the original game plus eight skill-based mini-games: hunting, fishing, wagon repairing, river crossing, rafting, telegraphing, gold panning and berry picking. Some of the mini games will use the device's built in accelerometer.

The game includes updated graphics, side missions and random events such as disease, bandits and hitchhikers. Now word yet on when the game will be rolling to the App Store, but we did these handy dandy screen shots to contemplate.

Where's the dysentery?
