    Default After an introduction to 'mobile game development'

    Well I'm interested in where I should start and how I should start. I know Java quite fluently but I kind of struggle when it comes to something new. So I would find it amazingly helpful if someone could give me a little tutorial or even link me to a guide.

    Thanks in regards.

    Are you planning on developing games for a phone which uses Java? If so, you'll probably want to take a look at Java ME (do a google search and it should pop up with several tutorials). If you're doing something like iPhone development or Android development, I'd suggest finding a website/forum which is dedicated to these platforms as they will have the technical know-how to help you get started (also, iPhones can't run Java, I'm not sure about Android phones, but I think they might be able to run Java).

    If you are looking to do phone development with Java, I would recommend the Android platform as their apps are developed in java. If you are looking to go into iPhone development you will need to get familiar with Objective C and the iPhone SDK.

    Anyway here is a link to help you get started with Android, they have tutorials on their website. They also have their own libraries which you will have to get used to.
