Description

This comprehensive course will take you all the way through libGDX game development framework in Java. LibGDX provides an environment for rapid prototyping and fast iterations. Instead of deploying to Android/iOS/Javascript after each code change, you can run and debug your game on the desktop, natively.

This course is for everyone who has desire to learn libGDX. The game complexity increases with every section and you will be able to rise your knowledge throughout the course.

You will develop amazing games and you learn how to use libGDX  to animate the came characters and design the gameplay graphics. You will also create and import pictures used in the games and get familiar with creating random patterns, menu screens and playing music while playing the game.
