My Tetris clone on Android
Hi guys! Today, I'm back to developing Android applications and my first step is making a tetris clone. I based it on my XNA implementation of tetris a year ago. The code that I followed is made by Javier Lopez's tutorial on making a tetris clone in C++ (Credits to him I learned a lot when I was still studying :D). He has a very good and clean code (Clean enough for C++ implementation) which made it easy to implement on various platforms including Android (Windows, XBOX, iPhone, name it!). I've gone through many tutorials on making a Tetris clone but this ones the best I could see (I bought a book before about game development which has a chapter focusing on developing a tetris clone, It sucks! It's so language specific and complex).
I based my work on my dirty game engine. I'm still continuing to develop this app and I will base my future game (Similar yet very different to tetris) on this. I'm glad to be back on developing Android applications! :D
