Gameplay of yet another favourite DOS game of mine. One version of Oregon Trail that is actually surprisingly hard to find a download for these days. For those that haven't played the game, the game takes place in 1848, and you get to pick from 1 of 3 starting roles to play as. Consider each one the difficulty setting, as the money you start with varies. Banker from Boston - $1600.00 Carpenter from Ohio - $800.00 Farmer from Illonois - $400.00
One other thing that must be said, if you survive the trip, if you started as a banker, your score won't be multiplied, being a carpenter will multiply your final score by 2, and being a farmer will multiply your score by 3.
Along the way 1 of various random events can occur. You may get robbed by a thief while your party is sleeping, your cart may catch fire (somehow....), someone could get lost, someone could get sick or even die, you might find wild fruit, etc. Along the way you stop at various landmarks and forts. You can also hunt for food if you run out of food along the way. Don't waste your bullets while hunting though, you can only carry back 100 pounds of meat each trip.
