  1. Game can be played here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.potat0.stackyblock This is my first game I’ve ever put on the app store and it is called Stacky Block. I'm a noob at gamedev, so the game is very simple, tap to drop blocks at precise moments and try to stack the highest tower you can. A game that inspired me was the arcade game Stacker. I wanted to capture the feeling of arcade games through the quick reaction speed and the randomness of the blocks. I programmed this in java using the game framework libgdx. For me making this game was pretty challenging, it took me probably a month to finish It was a lot of procrastination and frustration but i'm glad i stuck through because finishing the game was a great feeling. I made this game mainly to learn the process of gamedev, so If you have any advice, critique, or questions feel free to PM me.

    I think everyone has struggles like these when they are making a game. It doesn't matter what language or engine you use but I'd say pick something and stick too it, start a simple project and keep adding too it.
  4. I have used both GameMaker and LibGDX and from my experience LibGDX had a steeper learning curve. In GameMaker a lot of it is drag and drop so it is easy to push out a prototype quickly. If you just want to make games i'd say use GameMaker, but if you are more into the programming side of things i'd use LibGDX.
