Hello simondid, in this example (Mr.Nom) all the coordinates are referred to 320 px Width x 480 px Height screen, as defined in AndroidGame class. This class scales the device resolution using the framebuffer, so you can create your game assuming that the resolution is fixed to 320x480.

So if you put an image at 0,0 it will be at top left corner, at 160,240 will be at center position.

I hope this helps you
