Dope Wars for Windows is based on the popular '80s game Dope Wars (DOS) (which in turn is based on the original, Drug Wars). In Dope Wars (Windows), you must make your money by buying and selling a variety of Illegal drugs while avoiding various hazards such as cops and muggers. Dope Wars (Windows) gives you a choice of making your mark in one of five cities: New York, Los Angeles, London, Derby, and Sydney. Once you choose your city, you start with $2,000 in your trenchcoat and $5,500 in debt. You must travel among the city's six neighborhoods (specific to the five different locales), checking out the various drugs that may be available and their fluctuating prices, and buying the drugs that you think you'll be able to sell at a profit in another neighborhood. You'll want to pay off your debt early, as the interest continues to grow, and then see how much of a profit you can make before the end of the month (game time) when the game ends. If you're lucky, you'll have the opportunity to purchase a gun or an overcoat with extra pockets.
This version of Dope Wars has a totally revised interface that can be played by pointing and clicking the mouse, a Unit Price option, which can display the amount you paid for the drugs in your pocket (though purists will want to keep this turned off), a renamed list of drugs that are more in sync with the '90s, sound effects, and the ability to pay off your loans from any neighborhood (incorporating the reality of money machines).
