Organ Trail at first glance sounds like a bad joke that's taken a life of its own. Take the classic, notoriously difficult educational game Oregon Trail, transpose it into the zombie apocalypse, and you get Organ Trail, a pixelated, retro, post-apocalyptic odyssey. You and a small band of survivors clamber into a trusty old station wagon and trek through the bleak, zombie-infested wasteland of the post-apocalypse USA in order to reach a safe haven on the west coast. Along the way, you'll have to ration your food and ammunition, scavenge for supplies, dodge zombies and bandits, all while making tough survival decisions.
Verdict: Don't let the retro graphics turn you away, Organ Trail: Director's Cut is a surprisingly compelling zombie apocalypse game that isn't just about running and gunning, but also about the simple challenge of staying alive in a broken world.
