Boxer

1.4.0
28 March 2016

MS-DOS game emulation based on DOSBox.

Overview

Boxer plays all the MS-DOS games of your misspent youth, right here on your Mac

There's no clots of configuration and baffling DOS commands between you and your fun: just drag-drop your games onto Boxer, and you'll be playing in minutes

Boxer takes your CDs and floppies and wraps them into app-style gameboxes you just click to play. They're self-contained so you can back them up or share them with friends. No mess, no fuss

If your nostalgia demands more, then decorate your games with gorgeous icons and admire your collection from your very own Finder games shelf

Boxer is powered by DOSBox's robust emulation, which means it'll play almost any DOS game you throw at it

Just discovered the latest version : new interface, new options, more efficiency, still rock-solid stability, still fast, still the best DOS emulator i've had the pleasure to use. Highly recommended.

Amazing piece of software. It's a wrapper for DOSbox that's really easy to use and has a great Mac look and feel to it. Can't think of a way to improve it.

This just saved me from taking a 20 mile trip thru a snow storm. We use old DOS software for calculations where I work and sure enough they needed help while I was home. My Windows box decided it didn't want to boot on me and I found Boxer. Works great for my needs, and saved me quite a bit of hassle. Couldn't be easier and of course you can't beat the price!

Finally, Mac gamers can claim some superiority over Windows in the form of this program which will play all those DOS games that we may have missed throughout the late 80's and 90's. Finally, we get the gaming we deserve. Finally, you don't even have to know what a DOS prompt is, or how to point to a directory. Drag, drop, play. Memorize a few keyboard commands and you're good to go. If you want to get into the more advanced areas like soundcard settings, it's easy. Even the Help is great looking. This is about the simplest and most elegant software you'll ever use. If DOS emulation were a religion, the developer would be the Pope.

This is my new favourite frontend for Dosbox. It is definitely worth installing since it makes the installation of old games and applications really simple. It took only seconds to get up and running.

Great app to remind me how great somewhen games were when I was young. Also sometimes I met with DOS apps which somebody still using. No problems, great stability so far and also not too high CPU usage.

Quite simply *the* way to run DOS-based classic games on the Mac; joystick/gamepad emulation, introduced in 1.1, was a fantastic addition, and with improved importing abilities for GOG's extensive DOS-based library, it's even better. Now you don't have an excuse to play and enjoy some of the best GOG classics like Wing Commander III, Crusader: No Remorse, and Screamer!

Sorry, that should have read, "now, you don't have an excuse to not play and enjoy".
