Oregon Trail gets a proper “trail”-er: beyond the cartoony graphics, it adds new mini-games including fishing, panning for gold and berry picking; it even makes dying from dysentery look fun.

Solar-powered DS Lite

Solar-powered DS Lite

Not bad for a 14 year-old: this DS Lite is solar-powered thanks to four cells, two diodes and a chip to prevent overcharging; it trickles power to the battery so you’ll never wall charge again.
