installing old SuSE rpms in SUSE 11.2

Is it possible to install rpms from SuSE 8.2 pro to run on
SUSE 11.2 x86_64. I mean games and simple applications not system files.

32 bit apps will run on a 64 bit system, but 64 bit apps won't run on a 32 bit system. So, the answer is Yes, but you will have a lot of work to do installing 32 bit dependencies in order to get them to work.
