Lets look at how you can play some calssic Nintendo Games on your Iphone or Itouch.
The process you have to perform in order to accomplish this is called jailbreaking. This term has been given to this process and effectively means you are allowing your Iphone or Itouch to run unathorised code. Such code is not authorised to be run by Apple and they have stated that this does void the warranty of the device. However you can easily restore your device back to original (un jailbroken) status through Itunes.
The reason we are even talking about the Iphone and the meaning of jailbreaking is because devices which have had this operation done can run Nintendo emulators and mean users can play some classic Nintendo games among other things. That equals good times.
