    It's possible, but it's by no means easy.

    Unless your an expert in the programming language that the game was written in & in Java, you've got no chance.

    Yep I think the only way to convert them to Java is to completely rewrite them from scratch. Unless the phone is powerful enough to run an emulator made in java.

    You can download Dungeon Master Java here, I've tried this and it looks like spot on, even the sound from what I remember of this old classic from my Amiga days.
