Tutorial [TUTORIAL] Write simple games (Flappy Bird) using Basic4Android and LibGDX

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

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.

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.
