People always think making Android games is hard. I think the same, too. Developing a game takes a long time, from learning to code to making game assets. That’s why many developers, including me want to find an easy solution to at least reduce development time as much as possible. That’s the reason for Android game makers to exist. They help developers to code less in order to focus on other aspects such as assets design.
They make Android game development easier but comes with limited flexibility. If you want to develop more complicated games, I suggest choosing an Android game engine or SDK.
