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 Superstore to tool up for the inevitable confrontation! You can also buy more storage space along the way at the Superstore, 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!!

This is the ad-supported version. The full version removes ads, allows 15, 60, 90, 120 and 365 day game lengths, 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!

Loved the original


Maybe it’s the free version, or maybe i just don’t know how to use the app, but i don’t like the fact that it won’t let me repay some of the loan that is outstanding. if i only have partial money. It forces me to keep carrying the debt at 15-30% even though i have cash in the bank earning 6%. I wouldn’t mind paying for the full version if that takes care of that issue, but no commenter mentions it, and the preview doesn’t mention it either

Developer Response

I'm sorry that not partially repaying a loan makes this a one star app for you. Do remember, these are nasty loan sharks, not your friendly neighbourhood bank! They want all their money back at once and they want their interest, too! Will consider this option for a future update, but it has never been part of the game in its 34 year history!

Very addicting play


This has become my favorite game to play everyday.

Old PalmOS game — love it


Updated version of a super old Palm Pilot classic. Love it. Very true to the original with a few minor tweaks. Great work.
