Part of Android Game Programming For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Before you begin developing an Android game, it pays to be prepared. You need to answer the following questions before you begin programming your game:

  • Who is your target audience?

  • Which hardware/software versions are you targeting?

  • Do you plan to monetize your game? If so, how?

  • What genre is your game?

  • Who is your competition?

  • Is your game single or multiplayer? Is it social?

  • How will people control and interact with your game?

  • Are you targeting other cultures/languages?

  • Are you targeting players with special needs?

  • Where will you get the art and sound resources?
