The good news - you have $2,000 in cash, and licenses to legally trade. The bad? You owe $5,500 to Dishonest Harry, a not-too-friendly loan shark, interest is piling up, he'll be visiting you soon for his money, and he owns a chainsaw! Just sayin'. You only have one choice - dive into the world of wholesale trading of weed to make money fast and save your skin!

As you travel from location to location, a day passes and local prices change. Buy low, sell higher! But beware - Officer Hardass is looking out for you, so get prepared for a stand-off with the cops by visiting the Dope Wars Store to tool up for the inevitable confrontation! You can also buy more storage space along the way at the Store, so look out for sales and special offers.

Along the way, special market events will cause prices to rise or fall spectacularly, so be ready for these, this is how you get rich! There are muggers out there, so try to keep unused cash in the bank, earning interest. Other loan sharks can lend you money to solve short-term liquidity crunches, but they'll be after their money soon enough! If you get injured, pop in to see the local doctor at his surgery, but look out - he has no scruples, and you have kidneys. A bad combination.

Listen out for the crazy old lady, too. She sure has some wacky things to say, but occasionally, she'll give you a very handy tip off, which is essential to your financial success in Dope Wars. Also, keep an eye out (and cash on hand) for the chance to buy a larger coat. More space, more profit! Good luck my friend, you're sure going to need it!!

If your final score is good enough, you can submit it to the Game Center Leaderboards and see how well you fare against your friends, or the whole planet!

This is the ad-supported version. The full version removes ads, allows 15, 60, 90, 120 and 365 day game lengths for turn-based games and 1, 5, 10, 15 and 20 minutes for timed games, shows arrows indicating direction of daily price changes, and adds the powerful RCL 9000 weapon.

This version of Dope Wars is ported directly from the wildly popular version of the PC game, also from Beermat Software. Same great addictive game play, modified for your mobile device!

Another reviewer mentioned “Palm Pilot” classic... well I’m going to show my age here and say that this classic goes back much, much further than Palm - to the days of MS-DOS.
With no shortage of customization, this game is great for nostalgia, but also an excellent, fast paced competition between friends. There’re no super high res graphics or sound marvels to be found. Indeed, the game maintains the charm of the original, but is still packed full of new features. I find this game (again) really suits my need for touch screen gaming satisfaction.

Old school gamer

I have been playing versions of this game for years, before Smart Phones we’re offering the experience, so I may just be too used to looking at the Linux version, but I find the navigation to be a bit difficult, on an iphone. It is still a fantastic strategy game, though, and highly addictive, providing great entertainment. A web based port of the PC classic would be amazing. Lots of fun, regardless.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the positive feedback! If you have time, can you let us know vial email at what you find tricky about iPhone navigation? We might be able to improve things

Fun as ever but ready for an update.

Not sure when this was last updated but seems like it’s nonstop cop chases now. I usually play on Medium difficulty so I tried basic and easy to see if there was a difference and as far as cop chases, there wasn’t.

Otherwise, the game is just as addictively fun as ever.
