Jones in the Fast Lane
DOS - 1991
Description of Jones in the Fast Lane
A real "sleeper" hit for Sierra, this tongue-in-cheek game is all about catching up with the Jones, as popular saying goes.
Get enrolled in school, pay rent, buy material necessities... and make sure you do it all faster than Jones! Effective boardgame-like interface and good graphics futher enhance great gameplay. The less-than-aggressive Jones even at the most difficult level is the only weak spot in this enjoyable game.
Note: This download is the full CD-ROM version which Sierra released shortly after the floppy version. In addition to Windows 3.1 support, the game now has digitized voices for all the characters you talk to. Great fun!

I don't think this is actually a real download. Every option just brings me to a junk ad screen. too bad - was hoping to play it on the plane

I gave this game to my son when he was little, he did real good with it. Now at 38, he is a millionaire. I'm not.

Some people mentioned that Jones won't work easily in DosBox. I had that difficulty until I installed the DosBox front end called DOSShell. First run 'install' from DOSShell to setup the sound etc. After that a file apears 'Sierra.bat', that is what you need to run to play the game. I ran it from the shell as well and it works like a charm!
