Renoki: Making An Android Game (part 2)
I’ve been somewhat busy recently with CMU graduation one weekend and apartment hunting the next. However, I did manage to do some learning.
I sat down and watched this long tutorial which gives a good background of Android graphics.
I’ve also begun to look at several tutorials on how to setup a game loop.
Finally, I am taking a look at a tutorial on animating sprites
The basic structure of the code will be simple. You have a loop running that continually updates the screen depending on a state. The state will follow the below Finite State Machine. Depending on the state, you will have various sprites or other actions appear on the screen.
