Play Nintendo Games on iPhone

Nintendo on iPhoneThe first thing hackers do when they break a closed system is try to get it to act like another system. More often than not that system tends to be the much-beloved Nintendo Entertainment System.

Of course, the iPhone is no exception.

A group of intrepid developers has ported an NES emulator to run on Apple's touch screen handset. The first version was painfully slow and had no sound, but an update is already available that brings the emulator to a usable level. Controls are handled via an on screen representation of the classic NES remote.

Installation isn't for the light of heart, but there is currently no other way to get your Mario fix on the iPhone.
