What about porting this LEGENDARY GAME DSJ 2.1 to Android?

That would be awesome. I think, that You can do it! Programming in Android Java isn't very hard :-) After three months of learning I can do very simple games :-)
What you are thinking about it, Jussi Koskela?

I'd love to see DSJ2 on my phone, but it will be not magical as it was on the computer, despite these things I guess every player wants it for Android.

Actually it could be kind of cool for touch screen devices; using two fingers to control the jumper.

BUT it almost certainly won't get ported. Jussi has already said that he won't port the game even to newer windows systems. Android is even more different, it would basically require building the whole game from from scratch rather than "porting" it. I think DosBox exists for android, does it work at all?

A ski jumping game on a mobile phone? Sounds terribly difficult

Well, there's one funny game for iphones, and it's pretty good. It's similiar to dsj as you control the jumper instead of controling some little ball in the corner of screen.

I am now working on Ski Jump game. I will try to add "make own ski jump" feature. But game won't be similar to DSJ 2, 1 because I cannot steal ideas from developer (copyrights).

There is a dosbox for android devices, but it's slow, however you can make some jumps.
