Android game development


    Hello! Our publishing house has just published a book called “Game Development for Android” by JF DiMarzio, also known as “Android Game Recipes” . As the name implies, this compact edition is not only a step-by-step guide for those who are just about to start writing games for Android, but also a full-fledged cookbook, with solutions to problems and answers to common questions. It is worth noting that the book is written as an assistant in solving specific issues and scenarios in the development process of the game, and implies the acquaintance of the reader with Java.

    A look at the chapters, code and pictures allows you to make sure that there are ready-made solutions:

    • design of the game menu
    • collision detection
    • movement of characters and background
    • working with device sensors
    • processing user input data
    • preparing graphics for different screen resolutions, and much more.

    The book describes in detail what frameworks are needed to get started, what basic concepts you need to operate in game development, what skills you would like to have, how Android works and interacts with OpenGL ES.
