Beginning Android Games – Table of Contents

I thought it would be a nice idea to share the complete table of contents with you here. This is the final TOC (except for some orthographic corrections here and there). All the chapters and sections are finished, so that’s exactly what you will find in the book. Enjoy.

Fun fact: Richard Taylor of Rokon fame was initially doing the book. Due to various reasons he scrapped the project and APress handed it over to me. I started fresh from the beginning. So if you wonder why there’s Richard’s name on the cover: it’s old πŸ™‚

The book is scheduled to be released on April 5th 2011 at a price of 39.99$ for the print version and 29.99$ for the e-book version. At least that’s my last information from Apress. Please don’t kill me if it changes. It’s out of my hands. Here’s the Amazon link. All the code will be open sourced and placed on Google Code for your to plow through.

  1. Wow! Perfect! Gratz!
    Any clue about when it will be released and about the price (Sry, if you already answered this in previous posts)

  2. @Bob: no libgdx specific stuff. General OpenGL ES 1.0. But we develop a framework in the book that might look somewhat familiar πŸ™‚

  3. Cool. I’ve never done a game in open gl so hopefully this can help me get started.

    I would rather have a book without the “android sdk basics” stuff, but I guess all Android dev books are required to have that.

    Sure looks like I’ll have to buy this.

  4. Btw, do you know if apress plans to sell a kindle version on amazon.com?

    I know they got their own digital versions, but they have the annoying password protected pdfs which isn’t much fun to enter on a mobile every time you want to read.

  5. Very nice. I’ll buy this book. The reason being- I’ve actually skimmed the “Pro Android Games” book before at a local bookstore and I don’t recall it covering half as much as you do in this book in terms of breadth and depth. (But to be fair I’m only judging from the TOC in this book vs the actual contents of PAG). I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on your book.

    ‘Gratz Mario!

  6. I am a newbie to the world of android development.
    Any help in this matter would be much appreciated.

    Find out lot of good and new things on this blog.
    By the way Nice blog.
