I hope this is not the wrong place to ask (my apologies even if so).

I'm finding a book which focus on creating 2D/3D games using JAVA and can also be done by self-learning. For the level, intro would be most appropriate for me and I prefer start out with 2D.

If in case you wonder what level I'm for you to recommend most suitable book for me, I've finished two C++ modules + Data structure module at my uni and done self-learning 3/4 books. About Java, I've done "A Java Programming 4th edition" by Joyce Farrell and so in short, I think I've passed the very beginning level. The only thing I've never done is combining codes with Graphics.

any suggestion would be appreciate
thank in advance

I read this book and it's really good.

It's first 15th chapters are about 2D.
It's aim is 3D but you can still learn a lot.
