    Hi.

    I'm still a students and have no experience in mobile game development. But i'm really interested to develop mobile games. So far, i've learn some about GameCanvas in s40 devices. I've known java well, I taken an OOP class in my campus.

    I'm interested to develop mobile games. Could somebody give some tips and tricks for newbie developer like me?

    I'll start some question to ask.

    1. There is no game without good Graphics, is there any suggestion about where can I download graphics source for developing game??
    2. Is there any tips for developing games with kids for my app target?


    Thanks a lot for the coming help.

    Hi suhendrowansinaga,

    Could somebody give some tips and tricks for newbie developer like me?
    Have you checked the Game API from the Developer's Guide page?

    Then, there are the following code examples that use the Game API:
    Battle Tank
    Explonoid
    Sudoku

    is there any suggestion about where can I download graphics source for developing game??
    I would say that depends on the game. There are a few sites that seem to provide free sprites and textures for game development. After a quick Google search I found this page.

    Is there any tips for developing games with kids for my app target?
    This rather falls in the scope of User Experience and Mobile Application Design. Again I would advice to look for online resources, such as this academic paper from the university of Manchester.

    Hi suhendrowansinaga,

    1. If you want to make a commercial game, I suggest you to find a game artist so both of you can collaborate to make a game with appealing art. Because of a great art, people will be interested to play your game.
    2. I think you should make it simple and intuitive for kids. And it would be great, if you can add educative factor in your game.
