I'm just setting out in android development. I want to make a kind of card based game. I'm just looking for suggestions really on how I might start it.
I know I have to make the menu layout and view, then use an Intent from that to get to the main game view. My sticking points are:
There's going to be a deck of cards. It's going to be a set number so I was thinking I could just have each card defined as a button in the layout. I don't know if that is the right way to do it though.
Storage of card details. I'm thinking of using an xml file to store these.
You could try to check out this project: http://code.google.com/p/bestcardgameever-android/ And a post of the author about this (there is a second post in the same blog): http://developreality.blogspot.com/2009/05/overcoming-absolutelayout-deprecation.html
