I never played Oregon Trail in school. We played Lemonade Stand and programmed in Logo. Even though Oregon Trail and Lemonade Stand were created by the same company (MECC), I never heard about Oregon Trail while I was in junior high school. I’ve since heard enough about it that I wanted to give it a spin.
I don’t know where you can play it online. The one site everyone links to doesn’t work (the Firefox plugin link is invalid.) An alternate version is available, but I wanted to play the original in all its glory.
Unzip the two files and run the emulator, then drag the ROM files onto the running emulator. That’s it.
Partway through the game
Final score: 1341. I should have read how scores are calculated. I was a banker, but farmers get triple score if they arrive in Oregon. Bankers get no respect.
With the emulator you can play dozens of classic Apple IIe games. Download the ROMs from ClassicGaming and drop them into the emulator to play.
