Beacon Mountain

Using the Beacon Mountain Toolset and NDK for Native App Development

Summary: The goal of this project is to demonstrate how easy it is to build native Android apps with the Beacon Mountain toolset and Intel NDK. We will do this by building a simple game. We will walk through the steps of installing tools with Beacon Mountain, building the game, and testing it with the Intel® Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager (Intel® HAXM) emulator. Commented source code is also available.
