If you played 'The Oregon Trail' on a school or home computer growing up and have since gained an appreciation for the undead, then 'The Organ Trail' is a must play. Available on iPhone, Android and PC and developed by 'The Men Who Wear Many Hats LLC,' this clever update of the classic educational game brings zombies into the fray.

For the uninitiated, The Oregon Trail was a game released in the late 70s where you had to carefully manage your resources as your crossed the United States in your Conestoga wagon in the 1800s. Along the way, your family could get ill, you'd hunt for animals and learn about American history along the way. The Organ Trail brings all these things to your mobile device, minus the American history part of things. The fact that the hunting mini-games are updated with zombies that fight back adds a fun wrinkle to the game.

Oh, and the vintage pixelated graphics? Superb.
