Find out how to get started with 2D game development for Nokia Series 40 Asha phones, even if you’ve never developed a game. Michael Samarin from Futurice explains how to use the Game Builder tool to create simple games. All you need is familiarity with Java™ technology, with the NetBeans IDE (for which Game Builder is a plug-in), and with the Nokia SDK for Java™. Using the Game Builder visual tool and studying the code generated are great ways to build game-development skills.
The webinar also provides an overview of Java ME classes typically used in game development. Finally, it examines asset-management techniques and associated platform limitations and capabilities.
