The Oregon Trail, the classic educational game first published in 1974, is now available as a handheld. You’ll only find it at Target retail locations right now, and it’s not yet available online. The best news is that it only costs a measly $24.99.

This little gem is as full-featured as it gets. Onboard is the complete game, in full color and including the original sound effects. You can choose your starting career, name your party of five travellers, load up the wagon and, yes, even hunt for food.

Oregon Trail Handheld Gaming Device Design

This is a uniquely designed and eye-catching handheld gaming device that measures 9 x 6 x 2.5 inches and weighs 1 pound. As we can see from the images, the handheld game console is inspired by those retro personal computers from the 1970s, so it shows off a CRT-styled screen, multiple big buttons with smooth edges, we even can see a floppy disk drive-like detail that’s arranged on the left of its built-in speaker.
