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.

Best dosbox yet! I still think this is the best dosbox yet seeing as how I can get it to run simcity 2000 ceaser 2 doom 2 Duke nukem 3d settlers 2 Warcraft 2 all with no issue but the onscreen controls from adosbox made my fps games much easier to play which this does not have but all my games run awesome on this version as compared to all the other dosboxes I've tried turbo gdosbox adosbox dosbox and dosbox turbo and this one definitely runs my games smoother but I have a Motorola Xoom so having a onscreen mouse in my fps games like adosbox had would be a great improvement or make it so swiping the screen forward back left and right mimick a mouse also they digital keyboard makes it impossible to change the weapons as you would with a classic keyboard and figuring out the sound setup for my games is nearly Impossible but I would gladly pay 30usd + for a version of dos or even windows 95 something that could give my Motorola Xoom the same punch a old Pentium 2mmx 233 MHz and handlibg I would pay a lot for it and I'm sure I am not the only one who would but I am going to be spreading the word for you guys you have a lot of potential and I want to see you guys really tap into it...but awesome dosbox

Great App Sad because most of the negative comments are rife with computer illiterates. This is a port of the original dosbox(PC platform) and runs as to be expected. Only an idiot expects PC level performance from arm CPU's(those complaints about speed issues). Great port guys!

Galaxy Note 3 Works great. Not quite up to par with Dos Box Turbo yet but still a solid emulator.
