    More than anything else, this article read (yes, I'm new here) like a generic "Game Programming for n00bs" intro, with occasional references to Android in particular and mobile development in general. There was no real discussion of any specific challenges raised by Android, and no description of actual APIs. Their single "code sample" could have been for any C-like language on any platform.

    It was nice as a brief overview for people who are non-programmers of what goes into programming a game. Not really worthy of Slashdot, though.
