If you spent your school day rushing through math and spelling just to get the chance to hop on the classroom’s Apple IIc and find out if you had survived the trek across the river then you’ll want to hand over your money now for The Oregon Trail handheld game at Target.

The classic game that every child of the ‘80s will remember is now a handheld game that you can find exclusively at Target. The tiny pocket game features the same awesome graphics and even the drab gray device itself is designed to look like that same Apple IIc you used to play on.

Of course, it wouldn’t be anything without the original sound effects. The moment you hear the words, “You have died of dysentery,” you will be transported back in time.

The device is intended for players 6 years and up so you can share a little bit of your childhood with your own kids and school them on what video games were like before the App Store existed. You can take home this bad boy for just $24.99 online or in-store.
