Been following this discussion. There is another thread
over in the Kindle Fire section about DosBox running on Android with some great game suggestions. I use dosbox turbo and can recommend it.
I originally started off with aDosBox cause its free and tried following the gaming suggestions in the above thread, and was left very frustrated, as the OP of the thread was using DosBox Turbo and talking about his great experience running those games, while I was struggling on my Samsung Galaxy SII (a theoretically faster device) to run some of the even simpler games mentioned in his thread with aDosBox.
I finally bit the bullet and got AnDosBox for $3.99. I figured, if it costs more, maybe its better than DosBox Turbo. Well, big mistake. In order to use the virtual 8-way DPAD shown in the photo's, you have to spend another $2.50 just for their keyboard. I felt ripped off, and rather than spend that much on just a keyboard, I picked up DosBox Turbo for $2.99 which comes with a free virtual DPAD add-on.
SInce then (about 2 weeks ago), there have been about 4 additional releases of DosBox Turbo, each one adding new features and functionality. Recently, DosBox Turbo got a Game Profile Manager that looks really sweet and works a lot like the D-Fend frontend on the PC. I can now make profiles with all my control settings and launch any DOS game at the click of a button. I was also able to play all the games mentioned in the above thread at full speed. I'm not sure how, but DosBox turbo is significantly faster
than aDosBox, and its even faster than anDosBox.
Hope this message saves you from spending an additional $3.50 ($1.00 + $2.50).
