Does anyone know if it's possible to play a 25 year old Amiga game (Powermonger) on an iPad?

Search for Amiga Emulator compatible with Ipad.It may be difficult for that platform. I found this one:

iUAE Amiga Emulator


Most if not all of these gaming systems will be emulated and the game ROM's for the older ones are easily obtainable, Atari, Colecovison, C64, NES etc.

Bah. Don't do it! You have great memories of the game. You're going to get it running and then be all "OMG this is terrible. How did I waste hours playing this???"

I speak from experience. I jumped through some hoops to get an old game running... and then when I did... yea I said exactly that to my self. Maybe some games can stand the test of time. LOL Mine couldn't.

Solitaire was removed but comes back in Win 10.
Plenty of solitaire games in the Windows app store...

I would stick to official apps.even then, some games just do not translate well to touch or haven't aged well.

You've obviously never tried emulators, Emmigration. T

They are pretty amazing and oftentimes are more true to the original than any remake you might find.
