Just as fun as the original. Some things were definitely better: 1) graphics (though the original is still "charming"), 2)addition of achievements (might make me replay), and 3)tongue-in-cheek humor of meeting historical figures along the trail (George Donner giving you delicious food!). The game was also a bit longer than I remember the original, as it took me a couple sittings to complete. Resolution was a little off (app was made for the iPhone screen), but still not that bad.

Rob, if you read this, any clue if this is the same as the Oregon Trail for the DS you've mentioned?
(looking online)

Yep, same version! Glad you liked I thought it was a lot of fun.
