Is it possible to convert an application developed for mobile phones to a PC application? I don't mean running it on an emulator but rather have a version specific to the PC. It might run in an applet for instance. How would I go about this and would there need to be much modification to the existing code?

It shouldn't be a lot of work, but using an applet MIDP emulator like MicroEmulator will be a lot easier.

My guess would be that the game logic and data model is separate from the graphics and OS calls. So basically, you need to port/rewrite the graphics & OS calls to PC, and the other stuff should just carry on over for the most part.

If you actually have source code for the game that's not obfuscated and/or obtained through decompiling, and actually has comments and stuff - then chances are it's because you wrote it in the first place; in which case you should be smart enough to figure it out for yourself. Yeah? :)

There are lots of different emulators out there that will let you do this easily. Go look for the nokia emulator. It's probably part of the developer stuffs.
