Teki – Introduction and Agenda

Reading Time: 2 minutes
This tutorial is about a 2D game, Teki. Teki is a girl, a turtlegirl. The game is very simple. The track has three things. Teki, our heroine, the nice background about her  home, and some barriers, and they can be stones, and colorful birds as well.

The game is a side-scroller where the player controls a turtle, attempting to run on the ground and to avoid the barriers front of her.

GDX framework

We’re going to be using the popular GDX framework to build this game.
GDX framework is a free and open-source game-development application framework. It is written in the Java programming language with some C and C++ components for performance dependent code. It allows for the development of desktop and mobile games by using the same code base. It is cross-platform, supporting Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Android, iOS, BlackBerry and web browsers with WebGL support.


We’ll begin by looking at how we can use sprites in our games and how we can use backgrounds and starts to make those backgrounds and sprites interact with each other. Then we’ll put it all together with a scoring system and a game over slash start again scoring.

We are going to add a High score system as well, where the game will check the username and previous score of the useres. The game will sort by descending the best 10 users and save it on the actual devices memory.
