Abandonware DOS title

Dope Wars

Dope Wars is a text-based simulation game that originated as a DOS program in the early 1980s, but gained popularity in its Windows version released in 1998. The game puts players in the role of a drug dealer navigating the underground economy of buying, selling, and transporting various illegal substances.
In the Windows version of the game, players start with a limited amount of money and must use it to purchase narcotics such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and acid at varying prices from different locations within the game's fictional city. They then travel to other locations to sell these drugs at higher prices, while also managing factors like inventory space, health, and the attention of law enforcement.
