Hello everyone on gamedev! I'd like to know where and how to start developing for Android. And can anyone suggest me good Android game engines or frameworks? Can somebody tell me what game engines are big companies like Gameloft or EA using?

First things first man, learn Java, after doing that, you can choose from the list that other members provided.

Shouldn't be complicated, give it your best

If you have any programming experience it shouldn't be difficult at all. When I started I had never coded in Java before, but I had experience in C++ and Pascal. Learning a new programming language is pretty easy when you already have some experience.
