Course description

The Java for Android Games Development Course is perfect if you would like to build your own games to run on Android smartphones and tablets and you are new to Android, Java, and computer programming, because it shows you how to build Android games from scratch. The course can also be used as a refresher course for those with some previous experience. The difficulty level rises as we explore new topics, such as variables, loops, methods, object-oriented programming, and design patterns, and we build more and more sophisticated games.

Android is one of the most popular mobile operating systems and it uses the Java programming language as the primary language for apps of all kinds, particularly for games.

We develop our games inside the Android Studio environment, which is Googles recommended Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the Android operating system and provides a user-friendly Application Programming Interface (API) to automate many of the common tasks. When we write a Java app in Android Studio and run it, the Java code is compiled into executable code known as an Android Application Package (APK) using an advanced building toolkit called Gradle to automate and manage the process.

The course consists of the following lessons:

  • LESSON 1 GETTING STARTED
  • LESSON 2 ANATOMY OF A GAME
  • LESSON 3 OBJECT ORIENTATED PROGRAMMING
  • LESSON 4 WORKING WITH ARRAYS
  • LESSON 5 THE HUNGRY CATERPILLAR GAME
  • LESSON 6 THE SPACE WARS GAME V1
  • LESSON 7 THE SPACE WARS GAME V2
  • LESSON 8 THE SPACE WARS GAME V3

On successful completion of this course students will receive our Java for Android Games Diploma with feedback on your work and providing the assignments have been completed to the required standards students will also receive a Level 3 Open Awards Quality Endorsed Unit Course Certificate with 8 Open Awards Credits
