It all happened so suddenly. Massive disasters from the sky above and from deep below has been scorching our southern land. Rivers have turned red and sky black. And than they appeard. Nobody saw them centuries...orcs, devils and alien forces. And even more! Messengers brought news about people deceased long time ago which had been risen from their graves. This night, I have seen dragon with my own eyes . Despair is everywhere. All brave heroes are being called to arms by our king. Join his mighty army to fight for the glory. I have to admit "Magic has returned to the earth!"

An excellent app, but a few suggestions: 1) add the option to have borders for widgets; 2) the joystick widget should have a sensitivity scale, so you can set a larger micro-movement zone; 3) the joystick widget should also have the option to control relative mouse movement, not just absolute mouse, which doesn't seem to work quite right, and doesn't make much sense (the absolute mouse boundary isn't connected to the stick widget, and it's just like no widget at all, except it amplifies motion).

Just fantastic. I am able to play a large variety of classic DOS games on my old Kindle Fire 7 (2015). Interface is easy to use. The customization options make playing most games a snap. I'm just enthralled. Best version of DosBox on Android hands down, and it allowed me to turn and old device into my gaming console of choice. I found a couple of the widgets that I couldn't get to work, and a few more system graphics to represent widget actions would be welcome. But, that's nitpicking. What works here, works perfectly. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.

Many thanks. Widgets works in various different scenarios, you can freely ask what you need on our website forum or send me email, I can explain. I will try add more system icons, but just now I hardly work on some features. Maybe you can check our icons designer.

Magic DosBox is an incredible piece of software. Talk about getting your money's worth. I've been able to play my favorite old computer RPGs from the ancient days of computing smoothly and with incredible customization of the UI at my fingertips. I've created perfectly tuned UI elements for each game that I've installed, and everything has worked as intended. Really, the best money I've ever spent on the Play Store. I'd give six stars if I could. Thank you for all your work.
