For all the fond memories American kids have of educational game The Oregon Trail, the fact is the game itself stinks. What it needed was to be more like ExciteBike.
That's the idea behind So Long, Oregon!, which transforms the dusty old classic into a side-scrolling stunt game, like ExciteBike or, for the younger kids, Joe Danger.
You may learn less about American history, but you'll learn a lot more about fun.
So Long, Oregon! is going for $US2 on the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad.
