Should I use a game engine to make a Tontie clone?

In summary, the conversation is about making a simple Tontie/Whack-a-mole clone on Android Studio and the question of whether to use buttons or a game engine. It is suggested that using a game engine would be more helpful and allow for more complex simulations. However, no specific recommendations are given for which game engine to use.

TL;DR Summary
I'd like to make a simple Tontie clone. Will I need to use a game engine?
Hi everyone

I'd like to make a simple Tontie/Whack-a-mole clone on Android Studio. I was thinking I could just use buttons and not use any animations.

Could I do this on Android Studio? Or would I be better off learning how to use a game engine? If so, which would you recommend?Thanks

IMHO, a gaming engine would help you a lot. And game engines allow you to make more complicated simulations that you might want to do later. I can not advise on which are the best to use. If you want your game to be on a specific server or environment, that will probably dictate the engine.
