A colleague wrote a blog post today that describes the process of converting a game created from the XNA Game Studio 3.1 version of the platformer starter kit to the XNA Game Studio 4.0 CTP and getting it to run on the Windows Phone 7 Series emulator. The blog post walks through the process of creating a 3.1 version of the game, creating a new 4.0 project for it, importing the code and content, updating the code to handle differences between the XNA Framework 3.1 and 4.0, and making some Windows Phone-specific changes.
