AndEngine is a popular and easy-to-use game framework, best suited for Android game development. After learning the basics of creating an Android game using AndEngine, it's time to move beyond them and explore further. This book provides all the skills and tools you need in order to learn more about Android game development using AndEngine.

You will learn how to use 3D models in a 2D scene, render a visual representation of a scene's objects, and create interactions between these objects. You will explore frame-based animations and learn to use skeletal animations.

As the book progresses, you will be guided through exploring all the relevant aspects of rendering graphics with OpenGL ES, generating audio using OpenSL ES and OpenAL, making the best use of Android's network API, implementing anti-aliasing algorithms, shaders, dynamic lighting and much more.
