    Hi guys!

    First of all, I had no idea were I was supposed to put this thread, but I guess this is kind of hack(ish) so I try here.

    Okay, so a couple of years back when the majority of phone users had 'dumb'phones me and my friends found this awesome game that was called Bubblejump. It was very simple, you were a shrimp and you're mission was to jump on bubbles and avoid the sharks. It was very simple but incredibly addictive! But as smartphones started to take over the market, our beloved game was soon forgotten.

    A couple of weeks back however, I found the game file online! I downloaded it and got a .jar file containing a couple of .class files and the game images.

    My question is: Can I do something with these files to get the game onto my iPhone? I have done some googling and as far as I understood, the iPhone can't run .jar files. Is this true? If it is, can I in someway open the .class files and try to rewrite the game in Xcode using the same values? (I started to learn Objective-C a while back, so I guess I know a little about it:p) I wouldn't publish it on the App Store or anything, I just want to play it again.

    TL;DR: I have a .jar game containing a couple of .class files and some images. Can I in someway get this game onto my iPhone (or iPad)?

    Thanks in advance!:)

    There is no simple "hack" for this. There are "converters" online but it probably won't turn out very readable code. You can see what I mean with java2obc.
