The Oregon Trail is one of my all time favorite games and gameloft did an amazing job of remaking the game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the game yet, definitely check out our review.
While everyone is still excited about the apps recently launch, gameloft has decided to announce a prequel to their latest success entitled The Oregon Trail: Origins. Here’s the quick write-up we’ve received from gameloft:
Gameloft Announces The Oregon Trail: Origins Featuring Cave Men Going West
Grab your sticks and stones, take your woman by hair, and pray that you make it out West!
Before there were settlers, there were cavemen. Often forgotten, largely ignored, they paved the treacherous roads of the Oregon Trail before there was an Oregon Trail.
Gameloft’s newest title brings The Oregon Trail: Origins to all the wannabe Neanderthals of the 21st century. The game will be available for all platforms.

Apple, apparently still sore from the lashing it took over approving the I Am Rich application has started rejecting application it deems has having limited use. While this is not detailed anywhere in the developer agreements or store agreements, Apple now has the ability to do so. One of the problems with the App Store is that developers are 100% reliant on Apple for everything. They control to the keys to the store.
The app in question is a simple fart sound board application. Stupid yes, but there are hundreds of limited utility applications in the store. So this reason for rejection doesn’t make much sense. Seems as though Apple doesn’t like fart sounds as there was another application, Whoopie Cushion from developer DoApp rejected for another reason, community standards.
The real risk with this is that developers may spends hundreds of hours on an application and have it rejected for reasons not listed in the agreement — or worse yet, based on the reviewers opinion.
