symbian-logo Love Classics and specially old PC Games? In the era of GTA 4, Prototype, Red Alert 3 the love for old and classic games is still in our hearts, as some classics are evergreen, like Dave, Wolfenstein, The Secret of Monkey Island, King’s Quest and many others. So have you ever thought of running them on your Symbian phone? Well now yes you can.

Here I am going to tell you how to play old DOS games on iPhone and Symbian based smart phones. You would be wondering how is it possible? …well , there is an app for that called Scummvm.

ScummVM is a program that allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this is that it just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on mobile hardware for which they were never designed!

1) Go to http://scummvm.org/downloads/ and download appropriate version for your smart phone. I am going to download for my S60 2nd Edition on Symbian
