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!
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.
Both good and bad sides Unlike DosBox Turbo, this DOS emulator managed to emulate a CD-ROM very well, so that I could run my favourite program, which needs to be fueled from CD. This gladdened me immensely. However, my air mouse doesn't work that well, and I couldn't get Win3.1 to run properly, which was easy in Turbo. (Probably I need to set some parameters correctly, which takes time to figure out.) So I have decided to use both emulators for different purposes.
Windows 3.1 and win98 run a dream Would like a manager so can run multiple profiles. Or add profiles to desk top shortcuts. Runs visio 4 and ms office which DB turbo fails so happy.
DosBox Turbo is better Great app, I am a huge retro game fan, but I must say that, for me at least, DosBox Turbo is the better choice, lag was much worse with this emulator compared with DosBox Turbo while playing Master of Orion II (on Droid X).
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.
