Hi,
 
I have made a small game on windows using WIN32 and MFC, now I want it run on my MAC. Can any one of you suggest WIN32/MFC counterpart in MAC or a strategy to go about it? (I am new to MAC programming).
 
Please help.

Check out Cocoa. though you would have to use Apples "Objective C"

Carbon is the Mac eqivilent of the Win32 API.

Go for Cocoa it has better suport for programming and will reduce you coding effort too.
Re-code is is a beter option. I'll go for it.
