Let’s get something out of the way right up front: The Oregon Trail: American Settler is a cookie cutter copy of Zynga’s Frontierville. Now that we’ve acknowledged that, there are a few other things we should acknowledge too. Like the fact that the game was developed by Gameloft, one of the few companies that can somehow simultaneously clone a game and yet make it better. Or the fact that by adding The Oregon Trail license, they’ve managed to steer an existing franchise into a sensible new direction.
Despite its massive popularity on Facebook, we haven’t really seen a FrontierVille clone on the App Store – at least not until now – and The Oregon Trail: American Settler manages to copy the formula without missing a beat. If it were just a straight rip off though, there really wouldn’t be much to crow about here. Thankfully the folks at Gameloft had the good sense to take elements from The Oregon Trail franchise and mix them into the FrontierVille formula to create something familiar, yet fresh enough to not feel like a straight cut and paste job.
