    The game creation engine is the same. If you need to do a drag and drop game, it should be created similarly to a drag and drop game for windows. The only thing that you'll get is a way to export to .apk file.
    Nonetheless, there are some functions and variables that are specific for mobiles and touch screen devices.

    this is a multifaceted question.

    their are differences, due to things like the performance ability of the devices, that being said from a practical stand point of "will it run", the answer is yes, within reason and assuming that you set up all the frameworks correctly.

    android does not have additional functions, a game that runs on windows can, with optimization, run on android.
