It is possible to run  windows programs in Linux on ARM but it takes more
than just wine.  Way back, when the Sharp Zaurus was big news some people
managed to combine wine and qemu.  Qemu was providing the processer
emulation while wine provided the windows libraries.  If you search you may
still be able to find a tutorial about how to make that work.  I have no
idea what to expect performance wise but it would be an interesting

Another option, which may be sufficient for non-3D low resource games would
be to just run an old version of windows itself inside of qemu on the
device. You would probably want 98 or maybe even 95.  Whatever uses the
least resources but is capable of running your game.
