Thanks to the app store that comes with the Android phone, people are able to create and release to the public a wide assortment of applications for them to use. When the internet was first created, it was a good way to quickly get exposure to a product that you had created and were trying to sell or give away. Now that there are several million web pages made per day, it is just too hard for a new product to get noticed quickly. It takes time and effort to get your product noticed by the crowd. It even takes a long time to get a decent ranking in the search engines. Now that we have app stores on all of the major smart phones this is no longer a problem. We now have a new way to get your product noticed by millions of people very quickly.
One of the most popular applications that you can release for Android based phones is video games. It is long past the time when people would only use their phones to talk on. Now people use their smart phones to communicate on the web and to relieve their boredom when they are on a long commute. Since people like to be entertained as well as get information from their device, a game is a great way to do this. So if you want to build an application that will already have an audience, building a game is the way to go. Now to build a game you are going to first have to make a couple of decisions.
The first thing that you must figure out before you start to build a game for the Android is whether you are going to create it yourself or will you hire other people to do it for you. This may depend on several factors, such as your budget and your technical ability. You do not need to be a programming genius, to be able to release your own game to the public. You just need to know how to manage other people so that your ideals get created. Outsourcing the work allows you to do that. You might not know how to program but you might know how to create graphics. If that is the case, then you can get someone else to create the programming part and you can create the look of the game. There are many different ways that you can go about getting this done so choose the way that is right for you.
If you do decide that you want to create the game yourself and not hire outside help, there are a couple of ways that you can do this cheaply. The first thing that you need to do, is to download the SDK from Google. Also download the Eclipse IDE as well. These two together will give you everything you need to be able to program a game onto the Android platform. After that, you might want to look into a few graphical programs such as Gimp. It is free and it is almost as powerful as Photoshop. Also, for your 3D needs, Blender is a good way to go since it is powerful and free as well.
No matter if you decide to build it yourself or to outsource the work, creating a game for the Android can be a lot of fun. It can also be profitable as well.
