Pioneer Trail is based on the game The Oregon Trail where you have to travel 2000 miles across America with your family in 1847 from Westport Landing to Oregon within 40 weeks. You start off with 2 old horses, a wagon, four rifles and $700 and you must decide how much to buy of oxen, food, bullets, clothes and supplies. Before you set off you must test each rifle with some target practice shooting bugs.

When you are ready to travel you are given choices, stop at next fort, hunt or continue on your travels. You can buy supplies at the forts but are more expensive than your starting position, hunt allows you to attempt to shoot an animal. Before you start your next stage of the journey you have to decide how much food to eat from one to ten with ten being big rations. As you travel you will be presented with situations like how to deal with travellers and Indians, bad weather, losing supplies, illness and injuries to your family, and trading. There are 21 skill levels to choose from (0-20) with zero being beginner and 20 being experts.
