    Could someone come up of an emulator like scummvm to play MS-DOS games on the ipod? ScummVM only plays LucasArts games.. I want to play games like SimCity 2000 or simTower... or other ms-dos games...

    Yes it is possible and it is quit simple.

    Go googling for "Dosbox", download the source and start porting it to the iphone.

    That's it

    No seriously.

    The only possible way is to get old games running is to get dosbox working on the iphone. It uses SDL and is programmed in C++ with a port to macosx, so it is technically possible.
