"Oregon Trail crossed with a side-scrolling shooter of sorts. Cheap and replayable, you can put peoples names in and create odd fanfic, I guess."

About This Game

Super Amazing Wagon Adventure is a fast-paced 2d shooting game with a random story. You control a group of three migrants traveling west along a wagon trail. The game consists of short scenes that are sequenced together in a semi-random way to tell a crazy adventure story. One minute you could be massacring a herd of buffalo, the next attacked by eagles while falling off a cliff.

Features


  • Stupidly fast. The scene changes every 3-30 seconds with some new enemy or obstacle to overcome. Bears, snakes, spiders, buffalo, avalanches, fire, scorpions, sharks, bandits, wolves... the list is long.
  • Random. The scenes you play are sequenced together in a semi-random way, so you never know which dangers you will face. Rare and bizarre events provide extra surprises.
  • Unlockable wagons. New wagons with special weapons and characteristics are awarded for completing challenging tasks and surviving rare events.
  • Customize your party. You pick your party members’ names and appearances. Name them after your friends and then watch them die one by one in brutal ways.
  • A true challenge. There are no checkpoints or save games. When a party member dies, that party member stays dead for the rest of the game. The game is fair but unforgiving so beating it is a true accomplishment.
  • 10 minutes to beat, hours to complete. If you can survive, the game only takes around 10 minutes to beat, but the random scenes, high difficulty, and unlockables keep you playing much longer.
  • Survival mode. After conquering the main adventure, try one of the endless survival modes. See how long you can last against an infinite pack of wolves or a limitless stream of bears.

I battled my inner demons,
Caught Space Rabies,
Got attacked by rabid squirrels,
Went up into space,
Got sucked into a tornado,
Murdered everyone in a bank robbery,
Got gored by bisons,
Glitched the game,
Became one with nature,
AND....

Got killed by the smell of a dead skunk.

10/10

This is my first ever Steam Review and one that I should have done a long, long, LONG time ago (apologies to Sparsevector :P).

The game still surprises me to even this day with new stuff that I've never seen. I don't want to make it sound like a fact, but you will be hard-pressed to find someone who's played this game longer than I have, so for me to say that it still produces new scenes I've never experienced before, that's a stunning achievment.

I won't go into detail about the finer points of controls, branching story-arc, the "meta" game or anything like that. All I will say is that I've enjoyed playing the game for many years now, and the ability to rename the travelers is an instant trip to hilarity every time someone new dies. For less than the cost of a decent sandwich, I've enjoyed over 100+ hours and many years of entertainment from SAWA and it continues to be a staple of my routine.

I don't do numerical ratings, so take my review for what it is: Two thumbs up.

Take Oregan's Trail background, ideas and mechanics and... throw them away, because this is Super Amazing Wagon Adventure, a insane shooter and dual-stick-shooter with random events that makes you wish American History involved rabid squirrels and laser guns.

The most random game I've ever played. Completely addicting soundtrack, gameplay and graphics.

So much fun to be had with this game.
Remember the Oregon Trail games? This is those on drugs. All of them.

If wacky, non-sensical games aren't your thing, then stay away from this, however.

Tons of replayablity, catchy music, unlockables with different effects, and other goodies.
Grab your friends and go on an adventure. Or, if you're lonely, your waifus. I won't judge.
