  2. It's tough to suggest anything without knowing what level you are currently. Have you made other Android apps? How familiar are you with Java?

    for building 3D games on android you need to know OpenGL.
    3D with OpenGL | Android Developers
    I strongly suggest that you first make a 2D game first because 3D is really much harder to make.

    If you have no knowledge of making 3d games you cant build one in 4-5 months.

    Hi sainath,

    You might be better off if you download an open source 3D (Open GL 1.3 complaint) engine that has been already ported to the android os...

    A goods example would be Kwaak3 (Open arena port of Quake 3) for a start. I think it takes a lot of work to creat a brand spanking new 3d engine going from scratch. You could always "borrow" from the kwaak3 engine source code anyway since it is open source.

    Cool

    Let me know if i can help any other way.

    Stinks Methinks!

    That is the best book for OpenGL programming, however, You may also wish to check this one out:
    Amazon.com: OpenGL Game Programming w/CD (Prima Tech's Game Development) (0086874533301): Kevin Hawkins, Dave Astle, Andre LaMothe: Books

    It's a little old (from around hte time of DirectX 8), but it is still good none-the-less.

    Also, keep in mind that Android uses OpenGL ES (Embedded Systems) rather than regular ol' OpenGL. It is basically the same aside from different packaging (Easily understood by reading the documentation) and the removal of a few Classes.
