1.0 out of 5 stars Not a great book, 27 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Andengine for Android Game Development Cookbook (Paperback)
I bought this book as it was the only one available for AndEngine and ive been having such a hard time with it. The code examples seem incomplete and even the ones which are clearly meant to be examples you should use are put across in a way which makes it unclear where in the class file you should use the code, which ultimately leads to frustration.

Maybe for someone who knows AndEngine this may be a decent reference book, but for a newcomer I would suggest you steer clear as its frustrated me more than helped me.

Go on Youtube and follow some tutorials and wait for a more comprehensive and mature book to become available.

I feel bad saying it as im sure a lot of work went into this book, but unfortunately its just not good enough to use as a learning material. Maybe if it makes it to a second edition it will improve but for now i am probably going to just try and sell it.
