Android Projects

Android first arrived in 2008. At first, it was almost a poor relation to the much more stylish iOS on the Apple iPhone. But quite quickly, through diverse handset offers that struck a chord with both the practical price-conscious as well as the fashion-conscious and tech-hungry; Android user numbers literally exploded. For me, developing Android games is exceptionally rewarding.

Today, Android is the fastest growing operating system in the world and the biggest category of apps in the Google Play store is games. Add to this that it is very easy to get your app accepted for publication and Android seems like a great place for beginners to start their game programming journey.

Although you can program for Android in other languages, Java is the default/language of choice. These beginners Android game programming projects start from getting your development environment set up, right through to a fully-working Space Invaders game. Used in conjunction with our beginner Java programming tutorials you can get started with zero previous experience of any sort.
