In this video, Stop Skeletons From Fighting delves into the world of digital games preservation and the challenges of accessing delisted mobile games, specifically old iPhone and iPad games. With the launch of the Apple App Store in 2008, digital gaming was forever changed, but a majority of these games are now functionally inaccessible. Until now! Thanks to the Touch HLE iOS emulator developed by Hikari_no_Yume, we finally have the ability to emulate Super Monkey Ball iOS on PC, marking the first time an Apple iOS game has been emulated on a desktop. We even get a sneak peek at the legacy of SMB, including Touch and Roll DS, Banana Blitz Wii, and even Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania gameplay in this video.

This breakthrough represents a potential bright new chapter in digital games preservation, but it’s also a reminder of the impact of Steve Jobs and the iOS SDK on the world of gaming. By some estimates, Apple makes more money off of games than Microsoft, Activision, Sony, and Nintendo combined, all thanks to the App Store. Unfortunately, many old games are lost to time, but emulation offers hope for preserving digital games for future generations.

Join Stop Skeletons From Fighting as we explore the world of iOS games emulation, discuss the impact of preserving digital games, and reflect on the legacy of Steve Jobs and the iOS SDK.
