The Camel Game

Ok, here’s a memory test, first of all for my sisters, but for anyone who might recognize this game!

You had to race across the desert on a camel, walking or running, ensuring you ate, drank water and gave your camel some rest. The Barbarians weren’t far behind and could catch up with you. You came across oases, caravans and at the end, your father’s castle or something along those lines.

It must’ve been the mid-90’s or so, I would guess I played it on a Mac since it’s all we had at the time. It was played in a small window no bigger than a DopeWars window, with the buttons for eating, drinking, etc. I thought it had “Desert” in the title, but I guess not because doing a Google search, it only comes across “Through The Desert” and that definitely doesn’t seem like the right game.

Somebody help me remember, and if possible, find this little crap game that’s been making my brain itch for a few weeks!!!

Edited on 02/08/05: MY SISTER ROCKS! She may not have found the game itself, but she found the name for me – Desert Trek, dating back some years… This made my day! Merci Jo, t’es trop cool! 🙂
