Classic Strategy Game Drug Wars! Hits Streets as New iPhone App

May 10, 2011 in Games (E)

[] Los Gatos, California - Deep Thoughts Software announces today the launch of its first iPhone application, a remake of the classic strategy game, Drug Wars. The popular game, which was played by students on their calculators and gamers on their computers, has been fully updated for modern times with new challenges and twists.

The Drug Wars! app has been featured as a top 100 strategy game in the App Store of more than 40 countries worldwide. The game brings back the original challenge where users need to buy low and sell high in order to make as much money as they can before time runs out. Players travel around New York selling their wares and avoiding the police.

"People tell us how much they loved playing Drug Wars so we decided to remake and update it, with some surprising modern twists," said Shannon Holland, President of Deep Thoughts Software.

To update the game and make it more lighthearted, the app's creators decided that users would trade in the drugs that anyone who has received a spam email is all too familiar with. With stylish graphics and colorful characters, the Drug Wars! app might seem like a basic game. But looks can be deceiving, the creators say.

"What looks like a simple game at first turns into a challenging strategy game, especially when things are always changing around you," said Holland. "No two games are the same."

Features of the Drug Wars! app include:
* Challenging game play - Players must buy low and sell high to earn a profit
* Three game modes - Including a challenging 5-day mode and new 60-day mode
* Fast-paced action - Prices change quickly and the police are everywhere
* Leaderboards - Players can add high scores on the Game Center and OpenFeint leaderboards
* Colorful, stylish graphics - Fully updated for our spam-infested times

The creators of Drug Wars!, Deep Thoughts Software, is committed to updating and expanding the game based on the ideas of its users. Many of the recent updates have been inspired by user feedback, such as the longer 60-day game mode. They are asking people who play the game to contact them with requests.

* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
* 17 MB
