The iPhone has been hacked
once again. In fact, what still makes this event newsworthy is the fact that hackers find new ways of cracking Apple's smartphone every time. In fact, there are no two hacks alike, just as the
Nintendo emulator on the iPhone sounds like a pretty special achievement.
Hackers have managed to put the NES on the iPhone
. That's a start, although it proves to be one of the oldest game packs created. For those who still love to play them and feel like the iPhone will add some touchscreen thrill to the game, this proves to be one excellent solution. Still, it might feel like the user is wasting the high capabilities of this device on playing such old games.
The Nintendo emulator offers some NES classics, including Super Mario Bros., Punch Out, Metroid, and Zelda. Gameplay proves to be quite stiff on several occasions, although this could be very well considered only a start in the course of developing more evolved solutions for bringing these games on the iPhone.
The effort that these hackers have put into cracking the iPhone for supporting this type of games must have been quite large. Still, it could prove to have been useless, as rumors have been going by for some while now, saying that Nintendo is working with Apple to bring their games on the iPhone. If this proves to be true, we can only appreciate their effort, as it will prove to be in vain.
is a device popular enough to revive such old game concepts as the Nintendo ones, just for the fun of having to play them in touchscreen mode in the mobile way. Controls for these games are still too rusty for actually considering to play on a frequent basis. They are just great, at this time, as they show that this is possible, just the thing that most iPhone hackers have looked to prove until now.
