Example text

CHAPTER 2: First Steps with the Android SDK 27 Figure 2-4. ADT toolbar buttons The first two buttons on the left allow you to open the SDK Manager and the AVD Manager, respectively. The button that looks like a check box lets you run Android lint, which checks your project for potential bugs. The next button is the New Android App Project button, a shortcut to create a new Android project.

You guide a figure through multiple tracks filled with obstacles. The entire input scheme is based on swiping. If you swipe left or right, the character takes a turn in that direction (provided there’s an intersection ahead). If you swipe upward, the character jumps, while swiping downward makes the character slide beneath obstacles.

You should, however, always strive for an easy solution, both in code and on paper.

Unless you come up with something completely new and previously unseen, chances are high 55 56 CHAPTER 3: Game Development 101 that your game idea will fit into one of the broad genres currently popular. Most genres have established game mechanics standards (for example, control schemes, specific goals, and so forth).
