Oregon Trail: American Settler for Android Now Available


GameLoft has finally released Oregon Trail: American Settlers to the Android market. The classic franchise has seen many different iterations and this latest one from GameLoft is actually quite fun and changes the way you trek across the plains of the world.

You still get your oxen and carriage alongside a handful of people that you have to take care of, but American Settler shows us the side that other games didn’t show – the travelers actually getting settled somewhere and building a town.

Keeping your town bustling is no simple task and you have many types of buildings, tools and ingredients at your disposal to make sure things are kept running. You’ll get quests and missions to take care of and you’ll be tasked with handling day-to-day problems such as stampedes approaching your settlement or a bandit coming to town.

This is a freemium game meaning it’s free to download and play but you are heavily encouraged to purchase in-game items and currency to keep the gameplay moving forward.

I’ve been playing this game for quite some time on iOS (yes, I know) but I eventually hit a roadblock that made it almost impossible for me to move on with the game without buying in-game currency. And I refuse to buy in-game currency. Just a quick warning before you get all addicted to it. Find the download in the Android market. [via Droid Gamers]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. If I can not die of dysentery then I don’t want it. 

    1. Do not want!

      1. Bwah ah haha! Awesomeness!

  2. No way this is nearly as cool as the old school Oregon Trail I played in elementary school.  Do you still have to decide whether or not to ford the rivers?

    1. lol, I actually liked the surgeon game a whole lot more, do you remember that one?

    2. I LOVED that game as a kid!

  3. This may sound geeky but I check the market for Oregon trail all the time….would have liked to see the original but this should be fun!

  4. NO LOVE FOR GNEX?!?!?! That’s my childhood game!…wack!

  5. I would rather have seen a straight up port of the old oregan trail. I want everyone to die of some disease or starvation not micro manage a town.

  6. Played this yesterday for a bit. Turned off all notifications and was awaken at 130 in the morning saying my guy was fully energized or something of the sort. So I uninstalled it. I’m not dealing with that horsesheet!

  7. Yet another incompatible app with my Rezound.

  8. Wait Chris is our video game guy! Why didn’t he post this?!?!

  9. Not compatible with the gnex???!!

  10. I just want to say how much I hate the “Freemium” model. I would much rather buy the full game outright. Freemium is worse, since you can pay as much as you would for a full game, but eventually you run out of in-game currency, and are left with a just-as-crippled game at that point.

    1. That’s the idea… get you hooked… and get you paying. The in-game currency is ridiculously expensive. Even if I tossed $100 (real money) at the game I could burn through it in under 30 minutes and still not have an epic town. I might actually be willing to pay for currency in freemium games if it was remotely reasonable.

  11. The graphics don’t look to intense but says its not compatible with Droid Inc (running CM7.1). At least they didn’t let e buy it like GTA and find out it runs like absolute crap. Sonic CD had some slowdown too, but is playable.

  12. IOS? Shame on you!

  13. Not compatible with the Rezound (per usual for Gameloft) and the Touchpad is listed as compatible, but says it’s not once installed… Oh well. Back to waiting for the REAL Oregon Trail.

  14. nice
