Hi,

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

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