One of my favorite games, I know it has been ported to some low power operating systems (such as a TI calculator), so how hard would it be to make it android native? Maybe we can emulate it through one of the operating systems its ported to? Thoughts anyone?

Feels good man
I was wondering this stuff myself. I've got a Rhodium I was thinking of booting Rhobuntu on just so I could carry Cave Story with me everywhere. I was also looking into GP2X emulators for Android in case that would let me play Cave Story on my Rhodium via XAndroid, but a native Android app would be ideal. Bounty? I'd pitch in for a port.

The source for Cave Story was taken down when it was announced that there was a version being made for WiiWare.

I was all excited for a second, thinking there was work going on for a PPC or Android port. I'm confused, as there are already Windows and Linux ports available here:

EDIT: OK, I get it - open source! It took me this long because I'm a big dummy.

I know this thread is a tad old but actually, i am trying to port cave story to android. It will be open source when it is released as required by gpl (anyone wanting the source now can pm me). I have it loading into "safe mode" so far as the data directories still have to be defined manually as far as i know. Another bug i found is that it will not even load up in landscape mode at the moment. Its a problem with SDL_blit_N.c according to my crash reports. Attached is a screenshot of what i have working so far. As this is open source, any help with this project will be appreciated. Again, just PM me for the source.
