I have co-created a game. The software programmer has used Java to create the game. How can we make the game playable on mobile phones?

The Java that runs on mobile phones is usually Java ME (Micro Edition), so you'll have to make it work on Java ME. I don't know anything about Java ME, so I can't help you any further with it...

You have to modify your game code and port it into Java ME. Because Java ME has less methods than Java SE, you must modify some (may be many) on your code.
for developing game you can use GameCanvas instead of Canvas, which supports more game functions (key control, sound, animation, etc). ngg... where should we start?
I think Jason Lam (http://www.jasonlam604.com/books.php) has made a clear explanation and tutorial on how to make a Java mobile game.
you can start from there.

have fun.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
