Hi,

I'm interested in game development for mobile devices. Could you please direct me some useful tutorials or resources for mobile game development for Android platform?

Do you dedicate some pages for covering this area in your book?

I am not aware of any books or sites specifically geared towards Android game development. It's not an area I spend much time in, though, so I may have missed something.

Do you dedicate some pages for covering this area in your book?



Not really. My upcoming Advanced Android book will have coverage of sensors, for detecting shaking, steering, etc. However, I'm not a game developer, so I specifically do not have coverage of 2D/3D graphics, etc.

Sorry!

Something else you may want to try..

Try making games specifically for J2SE, such as getting all your game logic sorted out, and then look at adapting it to work on android. This is a good option as it allows you to create the game without all the android overhead initially (but don't have this limit yourself)

For example, create a "hangman" type game accepting console input/output. When you have it working, port that code to android and substitute the console for the android UI elements
