comparing all the Android DOS emulators. The newer versions of DosBox Turbo are quite a bit faster than shown in the video.
Amazingly, its even possible to run heavy MS Windows based games in this emulator such as Half-Life
. Be forewarned that you will need a fast device to play Window's based games, and FAQ states running Windows on this emulator is experimental and the author cannot provide e-mail support for such configurations.

This is the only Android DOS emulator that I've been able to get Wing Commander IV to play well in, and I've tried them all! Great find!

Yes, very similar to MAME ROM's. You need to download the DOS games to your PC, unzip them to a directory, and then transfer to your phone's SD card. There are numerous sites where you can download legal DOS games including GOG, freedosgames and more. Most DOS games are just a google search away.
Some of my favorite's that you might want to try include: Warcraft II, DOOM, Duke Nukem 3D, UFO Enemy Unknown and all the old Sierra & LucasArts Adventure games.

Bought this last week at $3.49! oh well, even at that price, its a great emulator and blows away the other DOS emulators I've tried for Android in terms of speed and features. I'm currently playing Warcraft II on the bus ride to work everyday! Who wudda thought! =)
