Flappy Hermelin

I’ve created my first Android game called Flappy Hermelin and I’ve also published it on the Google Play store.

It was my first take on writing a native game and what could be easier to experiment with than a Flappy Bird clone? As I had classes in Android development at college and my development environment was already set up for this platform, I’ve decided to create a game. To do this, I was looking for a framework which integrates with it smoothly and which is preferably open-source.


This is how I’ve found this awesome framework called LibGDX which seemed and turned out to be very powerful. I strongly recommend it, however it might seem a little difficult and overwhelming without prior Java experience.

To learn from sketch, I have went through the tutorials of Brent Aureli and thenewboston, I recommend these whole-heartedly as well.

To save time on game design, I have bought my assets on Gamedevmarket, which seems like a really good source for indie game developers.

2020 update: you can also get the sweet new Android App Bundle from here.
