I've written a tutorial showing in easy steps how to write a Flappy Bird Clone using Basic4Android and the LibGDX engine.

Check it out here:
http://www.easyandroidcoding.com

I also keep a programming blog here:
http://www.coffeeinducedgames.co.uk

I just wanted to post a short update to this post:
I've also uploaded source code for a matching game using LibGDX and Basic4Android, it's called Orchard Crush and it's on the play store:
Get the source code here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ush_public.zip
See the game here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...s.orchardcrush

Basic4Android for those who don't know it, is a Visual Basic inspired language for writing appps for Android. It compiles to Java before using the ADK to compile to Android bytecode so your appps run at the same speed as if you'd written them directly in Java using Eclipse, except it's MUCH easier to learn and use to write apps.
It does cost money to buy B4A but you can claim a 30% discount if you purchase it through the www.easyandroidcoding.com site and use the voucher code: andymcadam

I've just uploaded part 8 of the series which completes it.
I've added the final part of the series on writing a Flappy Bird clone. Now it included sounds effects, a title screen, and a highscore file.

Do you mean the APK file?
If so, then that's here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...yBirdPart8.apk
And the source code is here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...rial/Part8.zip

Just out of interest, has anyone purchased B4A as a result of my posting and tutorial series? I'm very interested to din out what pushes people to part with money to buy software. I understand many people will look at this and say "why buy that when I can just use Eclipse for free" but it makes things easier and people will pay for that benefit.
