Hey, i have developed games on the standart android eclipse adt until now and i want to start develop better things using an engine
i want it to be in java
Some people told me to learn libgdx should i
learn it? If not what should i learn?
and what are the advantages of it over the regular android eclilse adt?
 
It's a library made to develop 2D games so it has particular features like animations, sprite, textures, etc... and the most important thing is that it is based on OPENGL so it uses GPU, if you develop with eclipse alone your game will run only on CPU and it will have bad performance even with few objects on screen!
