This Emulator Lets You Play iPhone Games On Your Mac Or PC
If there’s a classic iPhone game that you wish you could still play, this emulator might be the answer. It was built to allow its creator to replay Super Monkey Ball from the original iPhone gaming days.
The emulator itself will actually play other games from that kind of era as well, or more modern games so long as they don’t need any specific hardware in order to function.
Basically, if there’s a game that you can no longer play because Apple dropped support for 32-bit apps, this is worth checking out.
Its creator, Hikari no Yume, says that he’s been particularly careful to make sure that the emulator doesn’t use anything that Apple could object to. Speaking to TopTierList, Yume said:
I have been extremely careful during this project, perhaps more careful than most people would be, not to violate Apple’s copyrights so far as I can. I don’t use any code written by Apple, I have been careful to avoid reverse engineering iPhone OS itself. And in order to use the project, in order to use the code I’ve written, you don’t have to violate Apple’s copyrights. You can download the project, and it doesn’t contain anything that like, isn’t legal to distribute.
The emulator is called touchHLE and you can see it in use in the embedded video. You’re also able to download the emulator yourself via GitHub.
