Chapter 1. Setting Up an AndEngine Project

In this chapter, we are going to develop an empty AndEngine application that will serve as a base for a game. First, we will discuss prerequisites and download and install the required software. You will also learn where to get the latest and stable AndEngine libraries from. Lastly, we are going to create and implement a simple Android application that uses AndEngine libraries and then run it.

It doesn't matter on which platform you develop the project as long as you can install the Java Software Development Kit (SDK) and Android SDK there. However, AndEngine is not a multiplatform framework because applications created with AndEngine can run only on an Android device or inside an Android emulator.
