Book Description

With nearly 400 pages of tutorials on hand this completely free eBook will give you the skills you need to learn the ins and outs of Java by developing your own Android games! From setting up your own developer environment to learning the ins and outs of the language you'll discover everything that Java can offer you as a language!

Android is the fastest growing operating system (OS) with one of the largest installed bases of any mobile OS. Android uses one of the most popular programming languages, Java, as the primary language for building apps of all types. So, you should first obtain a solid grasp of the Java language and its foundation APIs to improve the chances of succeeding as an Android app developer.

This book will show you how to get your Android development environment set up and you will soon have your first working game. The difficulty level grows steadily with the introduction of key Java topics such as loops, methods, and OOP. You'll then use them in the development of games. You will learn how to build a math test game, a Simon-like memory game, a retro pong-style game, and for the grand finale, a Snake-style, retro arcade game with real Google Play leaderboards and achievements. The book has a hands-on approach and is packed with screenshots.

  • Acquaint yourself with Java and object-oriented programming, from zero previous experience
  • Build four cool games for your phone and tablet, from retro arcade-style games to memory and education games, and gain the knowledge to design and create your own games too
  • Walk through the fundamentals of building games and use that experience as a springboard to study advanced game development or just have fun
