If you don't know, chances are that you can't. (I have some ideas about what it would take, so I know for sure that I couldn't.) You'd have to basically figure out how the game works (probably by disassembling the original and staring really, really hard at it) and then re-implement it in C++. And even then, after several months, it'd probably be rejected for not being a point-and-click adventure game, if it's the game I think it is.

It's possible that someone has managed to get DOSBox to run on the iPhone. If so, that might be a solution.
