Android Version In The Works

In November I purchased a Motorola Droid from Verizon and have been itching to do an app for it. Well a few weeks ago I started work on just that. At first I was going to make a simple app to get the hang of things. But with my uncontrollable coding practices I started porting VE over to it.

Progress on it is growing rapidly everyday. The Android API uses Java as its programming language so jumping in was pretty simple once I got the set up done. Using OpenGL ES has probably been the most difficult part, although it only took a few days to get a good set up and sprite class that can handle rotations and static sprites drawing as fast as possible.

The Android version will use the new engine I have been working on. The physics works smoothly and its just down to making that engine into the game we envisioned. The Lite App version will be free and contain a few guns and episodes to try out. The full version will contain all the awesome features. All weapons, the missions, hopefully the story and a bunch of new content among other things.

Well I better get back at it. I'll keep you guys posted as progress continues.
