UPDATE: Please check out my Android game play.google.com This is my first 3D “game” ever and I would say it’s pretty good. It’s coded with MS Visual Express 2008 using XNA expansion and C# language. XNA is pretty darn good for even newbies when it comes to game programming. They have good video tutorials and using those even a complete newbie could make a simple game (3D or 2D). In my opinion XNA is good for 3D game making, but for 2D it’s pretty infernal, for 2D programming I would recommend C++ and good graphics library. I’ve used BEPU’s physics library to make the physics possible. I have only some experience from VB.net language and I thought that game programming is very hard, so I’m amazed how easy it is to make basic game in 3D or 2D with XNA & C# language. BEPO’s physics engine is too very easy to implement and use. I made this in 2-3 days. As you can see the bullet is physically modeled, so its very dynamic and it doesn’t take much CPU to calculate. Now I’m struggling with animations, I found that it’s very hard to control animation but I have found XNA animation wrapper so it may make it easier. What’s MAYBE coming: //NOT COMING – Grenades with physical and visual particle explosion – Muzzle flash to weapons – Physical player – Animations – Better visual appearance (shadows etc) – Decent maps – Menu – Internet multiplayer if possible ///////////////////////////////////////////////THIS PROJECT IS CANCELED, Video Rating: 4 / 5

This is NOT my first attempt EVER. It was my first attempt when I started using my capture card. I never resetted the game to try and get it on my first attempt un legit. I was lucky enough to nail it when I first started recording.
Me playing a game that I’ve been working on. I got a change to test the game on one of those notebook laptops. It’s called Crayon Physics Deluxe and it’s a sequel to a freeware game I did in June. The game’s website is at www.kloonigames.com The music is _ghost – Lullaby and it’s used under Creative Commons license.

Android 2.3 Gingerbread Walkthrough by Aaron Aaron takes a look at Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) on the Google Nexus S. Overall, it’s a minor upgrade from Android 2.2 (Froyo) and offers a new Android keyboard, NFC support, modified system colors, and improved performance throughout. It’s available on the Google Nexus S at launch, and will be coming to the Nexus One “in the next few weeks.” Other high-end Android devices will probably receive it in 2011, though no official schedule has been published.
