I am new to Android development having only few months experience in the same. I want to get into game development. Please tell me what all the technologies I should know for getting into game development in Android. Is it a hard thing to go into game development for a fresher?
Thanks and Regards

If the game is rich in graphics you probably want to use OpenGL, and if it's processing-intensive you should check out the NDK (for C/C++ development on Android).
Corona is the product of a company called Ansca Mobile and lets you conveniently create cross-patform mobile apps (for Android and iOS) in a simple language called Lua. You can achieve some very powerful and interesting games with Corona, which also simplifies development. Perhaps I'm shooting myself in the foot by turning your attention to Corona/Lua as an alternative to Java. However, I want to be fair about this and let you know that this alternative exists if you find Java too daunting for game development.
