DescriptionDope Wars 2.0
casts you as a debt ridden drug dealer - $2000 in your pocket, but $5500 in debt to a Loan Shark. The only way to get out of this debt trap is to make money by buying the available drugs and then moving to a new location and hoping the price moves up, or is driven up by market demands. Along the way, you'll encounter various hazards in your filthy trade such as cops, muggers, loan sharks needing repaying, etc.
