SUMMARY


Let's start from challenge.
It was a good fun and interesting experiment.
I am glad that I have done it, because:
·        I prove that you can do a quick game in short time.
·        I managed to make game that is playable.
·        I learn new things (that my current algorithm for levels was rubbish and I replaced with better one).
·        Give me an inspiration to write this tutorial.


Summary:
  1.  Always enjoy what you doing ... 
  2. Never update your IDE or Android SDK during implementing or testing stage. Finish , what you doing,test it.When it works, commit your changes and then update IDE, plug-ins and Android SDK stuff
  3. If you stuck with something, go for break ,drink 
  4.  "Premature optimization is the root of all evil" (Donald Knuth) .Do not optimize something ,if it not gives a significant improvements.
  5. Kiss principle 
  6. Choose licence for you application can be difficult .My favourite ones are wtfpl (http://www.wtfpl.net/) and  beerware. One of the best tool for licence is  creativecommons  (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/ )
