Sure, if you rewrite the game and make it work for the Android platform.

Someone came onto my server a while ago that claimed to be playing BZFlag on their PSP.. They seemed very excited about it. I can't remember their name, but this just shows it's possible? On PSP at least?

BZFlag on iOS-devicec and the PSP is simply possible via remote desktop applications (maybe with some custom enhancements, but thats basically the trick). Let a computer run BZFlag and remote control it via your portable device.

They were most likely lieing.

I've read that you can install Windows 98 with some hacking on a PSP. Going from there you could install BZFlag... though I don't think it would work.
Probably lying.

Hmm. I think they may have been doing it like this! Would something like this be possible on DS?

Why would you even want to? In any case, we are not going to discuss how to hack portable gaming systems here. Try some other site.

I would say defiantly a PSP, I used to have one. They should be able to handle it, especially the new one. (quad core processor) What about a respawn key? Same as lock on?

Licensing fees are prohibitive, and we barely spend enough time on the PC version right now... You will likely never see BZFlag on a Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft console or handheld.
