NOTE: I tried posting this topic in the Java forum but it told me : "Sorry, but only users granted special access can post topics in this forum.", so I figured I should post here, sorry if this is the wrong forum.

People are using tons of Java frameworks/libraries/engines for 2D android game development. I have experience in the android SDK as well as in game development in general. However, what engine/framework/library do you recommend for me to begin developing 2D android games with Java? and what is the best site/tutorials/books do I learn to use it from?

any help would be highly appreciated.

Based on answers from http://gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/89/2d-gaming-libraries-frameworks-engines-for-android , it looks like your best options are libGDX (http://libgdx.badlogicgames.com/) and AndEngine (http://www.andengine.org/). You can learn about either of them from the tutorials on their sites.

I looked intro both of them, and thats what I found out:

1) LibGDX is crossplatform and more of a graphical library than a game lib/engine.
2) AndEngine is for android only and it is more friendly for newbies.

Based on that I think that AndEngine is more suitable for my needs because I need to develop games only for android an I'm not interested in making 3D games.

Thank you for you assistance.
