How can I learn Android game development?

A question posted earlier about the development of an android app got me thinking about trying to make a simple android game on my own. I'm a big fan of retro 8-bit and 16-bit games, so it wouldn't be too complex, but I'm only marginally familiar with Java. Can anyone recommend a good resource on learning the nuts and bolts of how to go about it? I'm not worried about publishing it for anyone other than me, so it doesn't have to go into the business side of Google Play.

We at Guarana have special courses for iOS and Android development. Get more info on http://guarana-technologies.com/ios-training/ and http://guarana-technologies.com/android-java-training/ - it's the best way to learn coding.
Good luck on your project!

I agree that kilobolt would be a great resource for you.  They provide a comprehensive, step by step tutorial. Depending on how basic your understanding of java, there are a couple tutorial options.  




Yes kolibolt is a great source to start for every newbie in application development. Some of our employees before joining with AppsChopper they had tried to develop application by following this tutorial.


Even our senior developers suggest to freshers to follow these simple guidelines before going for advanced ones
