Do you remember the classic Oregon Trail game for the Apple II computer? I think everybody played this game at some point or another, but did anybody actually win? I don’t think I ever got to the end without dying…
If you want to enjoy the retro experience of playing this classic game (or any of the Apple II games) on your Windows computer, all you have to do is follow the instructions MysticGeek has laid out, and you can be fording rivers and killing off your oxen in no time.
If you really want to show off your love for the game, or just how nerdy you are, you can even buy a t-shirt with “You have died of dysentery” on the front.
Programmer by day, geek by night, The Geek, also known as Lowell Heddings, spends all his free time bringing you fresh geekery on a daily basis. You can follow him on Google+ if you'd like.
