Before we jump straight into some coding action, let's first take a look at a couple of core classes that will make our lives easier. When you created your project with the setup tool, the core of the game, the
MyGDXGame class, which is the default name of the class, extends a class called
ApplicationAdapter. This in turn implements an interface called
ApplicationListener. Now, you might think these are good enough for us to get going; however, there is a better class that we can extend and that is the
What is so special about this class? Essentially, it is
ApplicationListener that delegates the game to a screen. Every bar method, such as
onCreate(), is implemented. This will save us lots of time going forward.
