In later chapters, you will learn about 3D in LibGDX and 3D physics using Bullet. The final chapter details the process involved in publishing the game to Google Play, Apple App Store, PC, and the Web.The book covers all the relevant topics of LibGDX game development but makes sure that even a beginner can easily follow the development with the help of sample code and illustrations.
