Learning Android Game Programming brings together all the knowledge and sample code that even casual or "junior" Android developers need to develop low-budget 2D games with Java and XML. For the first time, it makes Android game development practical for thousands of developers who don't have the resources to build highly-complex 3D games. Rather than focusing on difficult, highly-optimized native C libraries, this book relies on the far more accessible And Engine framework and Java/Dalvik virtual machine.

Coverage includes:
  • Mobile game design principles, tools, and terminology
  • Using the AndEngine framework, Java/Dalvik, and the Android SDK together
  • Rendering images, using sprite sheets, and creating animations
  • Working with text, fonts, tile maps, particles, and sound
  • Supporting user input and creating an effective game interface
  • Working with the physics engine
  • Integrating, tuning, and testing the complete game
  • Publishing games on Android Market or downloading them directly to Android devices

Key Features:
  • Perfect for game developers who don't have huge resources, and want to quickly create successful low-budget 2D games for Android smartphones and tablets
  • Offers practical guidance for designing simple games that are ideally suited to Android mobile devices
  • Provides solutions and example code for all key elements of a game app, from user interface to physics engine
