    Followed the tutorial video got on to the fallout screen. Trying to boot up blood have it all on there and nothing happens. My hands ache because the touch controls and joystick for mouse cursor is horrendous. To angry to continue.

    This has been for long time the best DOSBOX port on Android. But as it toppled in the past the previous king (AnDOSBox), it has now been toppled by the recent newcomer - MagicBox (its "widgets" are unique). Why am I writing here - into the DosBox Turbo review - about the competing product? Well, I would like the author of the DosBox Turbo to inspire itself from the competing product... Till now

    So good being able to play all the old awesome DOS games on the go. Most of the old greats completely crap all over the miserable excuse for "games" that are being made these days (which are just a "pay to win"/"pay to progress" marketting model with zero challenge or gameplay).

    Its faster than the rest, but not so that games are playable. Not worth purchasing.

    Works fine but when I increase memory size it becomes unstable(this was not a problem before). It does not open virtual keyboard or even when it does only for a second and crashes down. Resizing screen also cause crash. All versions before were more stable. Hope for new update soon :s
