turning a mobile game from the google play store into a NDSI game, is it possible?
there is this really popular app called puzzle and dragons i could see it used in a DS fashion just with the way the game is set up, though i can see it i don't know how the mechanics of the game its self and if it could somehow work on the DS at all, if you dont know the game, there is player interaction, such as mail system, a version of party dungeons, and a friends system. the main function of the game is set up in a bejeweled/ candy crush type game in which the orbs are on one half of the screen (the lower,) and the animation of the battling is set up on the top half of the screen already on the mobile smart device. the game does not work at all if there is no wifi connection available thus using a DSI instead of a DS light, i know empty R4i flashcarts are made, basically empty ds card, since the NDS uses SD cards as its gaming medium. the mobile game is also implemented with a google+ gaming play option to sign in and save your achievements in G+ play. and smartphones have a separate app entirely for google play, google plus, google play services. would the DSI even be compatible with the game format, connect to the game servers, could i transfer my save file from my game over to the DS since it uses a wireless data transfer, what would it take to make it work, is it even possible? from what reserch i have done, so far nothing has told me. "NO!!!!" though it seems like uncharted territory in the vast seas of NDS hacking to me. ( side note, if not on the DSI what about the 3DS? i currently don't have a 3DS that's why i went with a DSI)

Well, in that case, your best (and only) bet would be creating a "port" of the game from scratch via homebrew.

Just taking a game and punching it into a completely different medium simply won't work, and you'd certainly be unable to connect to the real game's servers just like that, too.

Have fun.

Now why wouldn't that work? What would it take to make it work . okay and what exactly is the port and what would it do . would this port version connect to the actual game servers . and why from scratch couldn't there be anything I could use from the mobile version any data and files,

Well, you see, while you could use some of the graphics and logic from the mobile game, just copying software made for a device and pasting it into another is simply just not how these things work.

In the case of connectivity, the servers are meant to be used with the mobile game, and the mobile game is designed to work with the servers. These servers belong to a provider, and you can't just get access to them like it's a friend's apartment.

Even in the case you make a successful connection from your DS to the servers, chances are you simply won't be allowed access by the provider and get blocked, and even then, chances are you simply won't know what to do with that information and how to interpret it.

Not to mention this all is most certainly illegal.

By "port" I mean your own version of the game. Made by you, with your own means and effort.
