    Virtually every aspect of Organ Trail: Director's Cut oozes style and cleverness.

    A weird, wonderful and almost surprisingly expansive experience that will both infuriate and enchant.

    An engrossing survival simulator which you may or may not survive.

    Has managed to turn the concept into something that's both enjoyable and downright addictive. It's an absurdly hard, unforgiving game, but that's a big part of what makes it so fun.

    Despite its inspiration lying in classic games, Organ Trail can really stand on its own with a tricky resource management, mini-games well suited to touch control and a bitingly witty sense of humor.

    Manages to nail the sense of dread inherent in all good zombie fiction. [Nov 2012, p.29]

    The original Oregon trail with zombies. You can watch your party die slowly as you play endless or campaign mode. Progress too far in endless and your aiming dots are gone. It is NOT A BUG. Random events, easy controls once you learn them, and more will keep you occupied. It might get repetitive for some, but for me the fun hasn't died it out. Full Review »

    I bought this game looking to recoup some of those Apple II memories from my elementary school computer lab days... and boy did it bring me back. The game isn't just a parody, but an excellent resource management game in and of itself. Awesome sense of humor, loads of replay-ability, and just a genuinely FUN game. You can't get more for less than this game. Easily the most fun I've had in a long time. Full Review »

    For those who were around back in the good old days of monochrome graphics (yeah, there was something worse than 8-bit), you almost certainly know The Oregon Trail. A bunch of dolts pile into a wagon and go trundling off to Oregon, breaking the wagon, hunting for food, and getting dysentery. Ah, the good old days. Well, they're back with a twist: The Organ Trail has opened. The zombie apocalypse has lurched onto the scene. You and four others pile into a classic station wagon in search of a safe zone. You're not hunting food now; you're scavenging and trying to stop from being food for roaming zombies. Survivor colonies are there for trading, work, and upgrading your car. And, yep, watch out for dysentery and typhoid. It's a game with great throwback graphics, a cool premise, good implementation, and overall a lot of fun in a small package. So what am I doing giving it a six? Doesn't it deserve like a nine? Yeah, it does, except there are some long-standing bugs that still haven't been fixed, the worst of which is a disappearing gunsight that renders you effectively unable to defend yourself or scavenge (which means your only recourse is reset). If that could be fixed, this would be a nine with ease. Here's hoping. Full Review »
