“Drug Lords”, a Drug Wars clone for iPhone

“Drug Lords”, a version of the venerable Dope Wars game for the iPhone, uses real world location data to vary the prices of drugs. I’ve never thought Drug Wars was much of a game, but being able to compare scores of other players in real life might be enough to get me to plunk down a few bucks if and when it ever comes to the App Store.

    Dope Wars, which was originally released back on Windows in the 90s

    Really? My earliest recollection of the game was on the TI-8x graphing calculators and later the original PalmPilot PDAs. Though it’s not dissimilar in concept from many BBS games, such as TradeWars 2002.

    I mean, I don’t think of NetHack as a Windows game, although it’s certainly possible. Likewise for DrugWars / Dope Wars / Drug Lords.

    Drugwars definitely got its start on the PC, but not in the 90′s. Wikipedia says 1984, under DOS. I remember playing it before the TI port came out for sure.

    Dope Wars is great, if I had an iPhone I would totally buy it.
