Hey all,

I'm quite new to the Android development, but I have about a half a year of Java experience. I've been reading "Java Programming for Android Developers For Dummies" by Barry Burd, but I'm completely lost.

I need to make an Android app for school, so I just want to make a simple Tetris clone. Any help that anyone has would be very much appreciated!

First application
I would start with some easy application and after try to create something like tetris. For game you will need some framework not just Java and Android.

For learning android i suggest u take a look at the new boston tutorial series. For games, Beginning android 4 games is a very good read. It explains game development fundamentals in detail.

Super Wilmer
I'd suggest using libGDX as well, I'm starting to port our game Super Wilmer to it, the reason you want to go with a framework like this is so that you can port to other platforms, like iOS for example. They have a lot of good support material and getting started tutorials.

Here is the documentation to get you started...
