    Hi I decided to make some games for the android o.s
    I already know how to make android application and I already know Java.

    The game I want to do are simple 2D game... The hardest I want to do for now is a Super Mario like game.

    By the way, I have no idea about how can I start doing this...
    Searching on google/youtube I found this --> Android Game Programming. Tutorial 1.

    What do you think about it as a starting point?

    It is difficult doing a game like Super Mario?

    Do you have any advices?

    Thanks!

    Nicola.

    Learning about collision detection is probably a good place to start.

    Looks like it, yes, but I didnt watch them nor have I developed games in years heh. But they cover the basics it looks like (looping/collision detection/tiling)

    In my opinion "Mario like" games are not the easiest starting point (scene change, collision detection etc
