Preface

Android has become the number one platform for mobile phones and tablets, and its popularity is still rising. Mobile game markets have become a great place for both professionals and indie game developers to present their games.

AndEngine was created by Nicolas Gramlich to ease the development of 2D games for Android devices. Since the beginning, AndEngine helped to create many successful games such as Traktor Digger, Construction City, and Bad Roads.

AndEngine is a full-featured open source engine. Its advantage is its simplicity. It is complete and makes creating any 2D game possible, and yet it is still easy to use. Moreover, AndEngine lets programmers use any part of the underlying Android SDK with no limitations.
