Bought this game at $5 and don't regret. Shame that Apple (probably) wouldn't allow this on the iPhone due to the content.

I used to play this game on my Palm. It's even better on the Mac..but WAY too many bugs.

You would have to be on dope to pay for this buggy software.

Fix it, and I'll buy it.

Why are some of you whining about the bugs and glitches? Druggies don't care about such things! Just play on, dammit!

Clearly, you didn't actually download this version of DopeWars. It is quite a bit more extensive than the linux version, which for the average would probably be difficult to install anyway. If you don't want to buy the software fine, but don't knock it (publicly) until you've tried it.

Clearly, I did. And if your attitude is anything to go by, I don't think I'll be buying any freeware from you.

I don't you'll be buying any freeware from anyone. Such is the nature of freeware.

This game is great. $5 is nothing for this game. It's well worth it. It's cheaper then Geek Pahse version of the Oringal DOS game. This game is very addicting ... addiciting like drugs!

Wow. First off, people giving this a low rating because they are anti-drug need to realize this game has been around for EVER. Even before graphical interfaces in the land of MSDOS. It's even ported to the Texas Instrument graphing calculator series. So ragging on the developer who worked hard to port (recreate?) what used to be a somewhat popular game that has been ported to almost every system need to cool their jets, and possibly find a time machine so they can go back 20 years to when the first version of this game was made. Oh hey, I found an article on this:

http://www.mobenta.com/articles/dopewars121001.php

Over half of Americans have taken illegal drugs at some point in their life. Modding a good port of a classic game because of it's content is silly and juvenile. If you find it glitchy, hard to use, or slow, then rate it as such.
