Wayback Wednesday: Oregon Trail Emulator and more via VirtualApple.org

Got a hankerin’ to play some old school games?

Here’s an emulator that lets you play one of the earlier versions of Oregon Trail (and many others)

You remember right? Hunting deer with an accurately timed spacebar, dying from dysentery…? Good times.

Play by going to Virtual Apple. Note: You don’t have to install the ActiveGS plugin, just choose the Java version. However, the game looks a better with ActiveGS (it will prompt you to install).

I have to say, I don’t have the patience like I used to – I got to the point where I had to buy my equipment, and then got pretty bored (times have changed, eh?).
