    You can't make it into Visual Basic, but you can convert it to Z80 assembler using a dissassembler.

    See the assembler file section for that. Also look at the game development -> Console files.

    Take a look at the arcade game emulator links/articles/files sections, they all deal with programming of games.

    Your only choice is to use a dissasembler or debugger to learn the algorithms of the game. But its not a easy task, you need to get some documentation of the platform that the game run on. (Hardware registers...)

    If you're still in need of help, my disassmbler set includes a Z80 disassembler. Email me and I'll attach the zip file (~210K) in the reply.
