The Oregon Trail: American Settler

This classic educational computer game gets a spiffy mobile reboot that features all of the decision-making, problem-solving and role-playing fun of the original. Featuring skill-based mini-games that include challenges like hunting and fishing, players also must navigate through random events such as disease and robbers. Players learn about America’s westward expansion, survival and resource management while establishing their own frontier town in the wild west.

For ages 10 and older. Free for iOS and Android, with in-app purchases.
