Introduction: Gaming and Animation


Gaming is obviously an important part of what people use "computers" and now mobile devices for, and Android is a perfectly capable contender in the graphics arena, providing support for OpenGL ES.

If you want to use some advanced gaming features without having to write a lot of code, you're in luck, as there are many "games development" frameworks in existence today. Many of them are primarily or exclusively for desktops. The ones listed in https://androidcookbook.com/gameframeworks.html are usable on Android; if you find others, please add a Comment to this Recipe.
