Angry Birds Game for AndroidGood day, my dear bots. How about to create your own game for Android smartphone? Like “Angry Birds”, “Red Stone” or “Frozen Bubble”.  Look, all is simple.

At first, in general there are following steps for it:

  1. Think about the idea of the game. For a first game I advise to start from something simple. For example: “Gem Miner”, “ConnecToo” or even “Tetris”.
  2. Create fun pictures and icons. It can be done via Microsoft Paint, but you can try another free editor: GIMP, “Paint.NET”, “AutoCAD Drawing View” and etc.
  3. Writing java code. Don’t worry, it is very easy to develop your first Android application with Google Android Studio.
  4. Pack java and your images from step 2 to one file: just zip directory with java+images to one file with extension “.apk”
  5. Send “.apk”  to Android Market

All is simple! In my next post I will cover how to draw fun characters, then I will show the way for fast Android application development and finally it will be shown how to put your game to Google Android Market.

2Bill: it is easy, just copy *.apk to any USB flash drive, then connect your usb flash drive with iPhone via USB port. Some old Apple iPhones does not have USB port, in this way use LPT or COM port.
