"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.

It was a dangerous journey, they knew that. But HornyFishMan, NuggleSnugg, and HurgaDerga had to do it. It was time they traveled to the West Coast in their trusty station wagon. Leading the group, HornyFishMan picks up his uzi. They hunt. Bandits attack. Some could even aim. They reach a river. They ford it. Boulders... so many boulders... and then the pirate ship attacked. Luckily, there was a rocket launcher in the river. A few quick shots, and it's down. Suck it, Blackbeard.

The group enters the Great Plains. Buffalo buffalo buffalo. The number of buffalo was absurd. HurgaDerga is impaled by a buffalo, and I swear he will be missed. NuggleSnugg and HornyFishMan go on. Horny is healed by health kits that was bought, along with a flame thrower, with the buffalo hide. Remember, the ones that killed HurgaDerga? Revenge is sweet. They see a woman in a red dress. HornyFishMan stops to see if she needs help. It wasn't a trap, and she needs no help. She thanks Horny and sends him away. A civil war battle is underway nearby. The group says hello. There were no survivors.

The group reaches another river. It was time the station wagon went underwater. Water buffalo water buffalo water buffalo. The group reaches an island. Horny notices supplies on the shore. He takes them. It was a trap! PELICANS! Luckily, he survives. They swim to shore.

They reach a mountain pass. Food supplies were running low, so they hunted. No bandits this time, but wolves. So many wolves. They find a trader. They use the wolves they murdered to buy a double-barreled uzi. There is a snow storm, yet the wolves continue to attack. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s... They deal with the wolves, and see a strange figure in the distance... Horny investigates.

BIGFOOT! Horny runs at him, and having found another flamethrower in the snow, takes him down easily. It is now out of ammo, though, so he gets his double-barreled uzi back out. Infinite ammo rocks! He runs back to the wagon, and the snow storm was rough, so in their panic, they drive off a cliff.

Buffalo followed HornyFishMan and NuggleSnugg off the cliff. So many buffalo. They dodge all the buffalo, and manage to land safely in a river. Having lost their wheels, the station wagon became a raft. They navigated through boulders and fought off alligators. Then they reached a bandit ambush. The bandits attacked with shotguns on their rafts. Successfully defending themselves from the bandits, alligators, and boulders, the group could see the West coast. They almost made it! But then a bandit showed up. He had found some sort of steam boat. Lighting up the boat as much as possible, it wasn't enough. A bandit holding a shotgun on top of the steam boat fired, and Horny wasn't quick to the dodge. NuggleSnugg joined Hurga, after all this time. She came so far, and it didn't even matter. Horny, in all his rage, blew up the boat with his uzi, ending his bandit problem. Reaching shore, Horny shoots pelicans in celebration. He made it to the West coast, though he lost his best friends. He will never forget that fateful Super Amazing Wagon Adventure.

This game has made me laugh outloud more than any game I can remember.

The only problem with it is that it may be TOO historically accurate.

You can trade dead squirrels for a double-barreled shotgun and use an eagle as a deadly weapon.

For three dollars it is a great game. It has some humorus aspects in it as well as a fun side scroller shoot 'em up. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good laugh and some fun game play.

Super Amazing Wagon Adventure is a randomly generated sidescrolling shooter that banks on a couple things: goofiness, nostalgia (slightly) and not caring too much about shooter games.

If I was to judge it purely based on its mechanics, it's not much more than mediocre. The weapon options are nothing too special, and the enemies mainly rely on strength of numbers to add challenge. The boss fights that I've experienced so far were OK but no big deal.

What really is entertaining is the silly nature of the entire endeavor. The game takes a lot of cues from Oregon Trail and basically makes fun of every option.

"There is a river. [Tom] has the brilliant idea to jump over it. Or, you could try fording it."
[Ford]
[Jump]

And then you can actually jump over the river if you want to.

Other times you might be attacked by modern cars or "inner demons", and the text that accompanies almost every event is weird and goofy. And it works almost every time, and because the game is so quick to play (the game I won probably took between 5-10 minutes) and there are a lot of options, it hasn't yet gotten old.

But it probably will eventually. And when I'm tired of seeing a million buffalo charge at me for the hundredth time, then I'll probably stop because all it has left are the mechanics, which, as stated, really aren't much special.

Still, it doesn't cost much, and it still plays much better than the far more tedious McPixel (I don't know why I feel the comparison is necessary - highly pixelated graphics and bite-size gameplay I guess, but nothing else much is in common so *shrug*) and I still foresee getting some quality time out of it, so I would recommend it!

Our wagon came to a river and we had to cross it.
We decided to jump it.
A gust swept us into low orbit.
There was a meteor shower.
We used our tamed falcon to kill the meteors.
We landed safely onto the other side of the river and continued our journey.

It's like having a massive erection you don't know what to do with, so you rub it against a cactus. You like it, but you don't know why.

This game has a few troll moments, but the story randomly generates as you get further. Also, the wagons have different themes and abilities, which match the objective of how you unlock them. You can also unlock a few survival modes, depending on which scenario you survive, so you may be able to use that to train yourself. And the price isn't too bad either. Do you think you're ready for an 8-bit adventure?
