    Im pretty sure that would take a bit of work (that depends on the game also).
    Im no coder, but a flash game would be quite dificult to port I'd imagine.

    It would require a complete remake in OpenGL ES, using Objective-C.

    Sorry about that, but you can't "port" flash to the iPod/iPhone because it doesn't have actually flash.

    First of all, you'd need the source code of the game.

    You can't port a .swf. You can clone it, and an easy way to tell that you won't be able to do that is because you're asking for a "tutorial".
