I am looking to 'restore' an old iOS game (Mega Jump)—it was unfortunately never updated with a 64-bit release, so can't be run on any iDevices running iOS 11 or later. This isn't an obstacle for me personally, as I'm just looking to download the app and have access to its internal app files (i.e. game assets... for old time's sake :P).
Without access to an old mobile device running iOS 10 or earlier, is it possible to download 32-bit apps onto my non-jailbroken iPhone/iPad (iOS 16 and iOS 12.5.6 respectively), or onto my M1 Mac? I am doubtful about any iOS devices, but gaining access to files which are clearly still on the App Store (and which I purchased with my own Apple ID years ago) seems like it might be more viable on a Mac today?
(Note: this developer has not removed their iOS apps from the Mac App Store, i.e. Mega Jump "needs to [be updated] to work with your version of macOS" and an updated game by the same developer, Mega Run, still works.)
Am I out of luck? Is contacting the (more or less defunct) developers and gently nudging/begging for a 64-bit release my only option, besides shelling out for an iPad Mini 2 or iPad 4 which may not last more than a year? [Counterpoint: if all I need is to download and copy files from an outdated app, I may be able to borrow a family or friend's old device, but it would be good to know if other options exist.]
