Explore cross-platform toolkits: Building a Game App with the Android SDK

There are many ways to build game apps for Android. If you’re interested in creating a game app that will run on multiple platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows and Mac, you might use one of the popular cross-platform development kits. The most popular of these, as of mid-2016, is Unity. It lets you build 2d and 3d apps that will deploy to many platforms. In addition to the Unity toolkit and libraries, you’ll be programming with a JavaScript, the language of the web. Pretty much every game built with Unity will need at least some scripting, and more complex games will need a lot of code. This course teaches how to build a simple Android app using only the tools that are included in the Android SDK. I won't be using Unity or other external tools, and the resulting app will only run on Android devices.
