Description

Have you always dreamed of creating your own Android game, but didn't know where to get started? Do you want to learn about Android game programming in a fun and entertaining way, while being insulted by a cranky Space Academy Major? Perhaps you should enroll in the Pluralsight Space Academy. In this course, you will take on the role of a cadet in the illustrious Pluralsight Space Academy. Our drill instructors and teaching staff will school you in game mechanics as they verbally "encourage" you in this fast paced Android game programing course. This course will take you through the process of creating a space shooter game in Android step by step using the popular libGDX library. Even if you have no interest in Android, you can still watch the course and build a Java based cross platform game. This course is course 4 in the 4 part series on beginning Android development, so this course will assume you already know some Java, but because this course uses a cross platform game library, knowing much about Android is not required. Even if you haven't watched the other 3 courses in this series, you can still watch this course and learn how to create an Android game in Java. So, are you up for the challenge cadet? Are you ready to face the evil Nullapointers in space combat? Do you think you can hack it at the Pluralsight Space Academy?
