This is definitely possible. You should look at the Android developer documentation for bluetooth (Ocelot has posted the link).

At the minimum you will have to do this -

  1. Discover the devices
  2. Pairing and connecting devices
  3. One of the device needs to become server. It will open a socket and listen for connection.
  4. Other device(s) need to become client. They will try to connect to server.
  5. Once a connection is established, client and server can exchange strings of message. These strings can be your game commands.

From my own experience, I would say pay good attention to architecture design for exchanging commands. As it may soon become messy.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @srinivas: I am not aware of a game engine that provides bluetooth API, so you will have to go with native API probably, whether you use game engine or not. \$\endgroup\$ – Vinayak Garg Jul 19 '15 at 9:51
