I'm looking at creating a tower-defence-style game on Android, developed in Java. I'm spending a lot of time trying to just get a background image (drawn onto a canvas) that pans/zooms within the bounds of the screen etc. that I will eventually draw my game onto.
It seems to be a lot of work just to get theses basics working correctly. Is there a simple barebones project that has this stuff taken care of that I can build my game on top of?
