Two problems with this app: 1) its slower than DosBox Turbo. 2) It costs more than DosBox Turbo.

Runs classic strategy game Master Of Orion 2 excellently on my HTC Incredible. Glorious! Just don't expect to be running anything with 3D graphics like Quake or Duke Nukem 3D.

Lack of features, compat w/ many games Lacking features and compat of dosbox turbo. Some imes are blocked to make them more money as well. **Edit: The developer decided to call me a liar. I'm not purchasing anything else from them either, because customer relations matter.

Games run fast and smooth! This DosBox program is easy to use. The old action platformers by Apogee play great with the optional GameKeyboard. The only thing lacking is a front-end game manager to keep individual settings for each game. Keep up the good work, Locnet!

My unbiased opinion First i'd like to say that I only just recently tried Dosbox Turbo because Andosbox has never failed me. There are plenty of reviews of people bashing Andosbox because they are too cheap to buy the Gamekeyboard. I pay no attention to them because Gamekeyboard is useful for many things besides Andosbox and really deserves to be a separate paid app. Then there are those that say Dosbox Turbo is much faster...this bothered me a little bit because i would like Arena and Daggerfall to run a little faster (i've already optimized everything as much as possible). So i got the latest dosbox turbo...Is it really that much faster? It did seem to be a little faster but not by much...also doesn't seem as stable and the other problem is that their gamepad sucks and no wonder it is free. Andosbox wins overall. Both are way too slow compared to a normal desktop with dosbox. Can't really say i can enjoy Arena/Daggerfall with how sluggish they are on android. One last thing.. Right mouse click much easier to do on Andosbox which is kinda necessary for attacking in these games.
