Combine classic 2D with today's technology to build great games with Unity's latest 2D tools

About This Book

  • Build a 2D game using the native 2D development support in Unity 4.3

  • Create a platformer with jumping, falling, enemies, and a final boss

  • Full of exciting challenges which will help you polish your game development skills

Who This Book Is For

This book is ideal for anyone who wants to learn how to build 2D video games or wants to expand their knowledge of the Unity game engine. To get the most from this book, having knowledge of C# and Unity is important, however, if you are less experienced in these areas, this book still gives you all the necessary tools to create your own game.

What You Will Learn

  • Create a 2D game using Unity 4.3's native 2D technologies

  • Control collisions using layered collision management

  • Manage events using basic timed sequencing– specifically, a boss battle

  • Discover how to track the score and game state

  • Design the development and deployment of state systems for object management

  • Use C# events and delegates to pass information between objects

  • Understand the usage of Unity's tag system

  • Make 2D sprites make other 2D sprites explode with extreme prejudice

In Detail

Prepare yourself to travel back to the 90s and build a game like they used to make, using today's technology. That's right; we're talking about making 2D games using Unity!

This book will help you build 2D games in Unity using the engine's 2D technologies added in Version 4.3. You'll learn the basics of importing assets and building foundation technology all the way up to full combat and boss battles! With the book's straightforward and practical approach, each chapter takes you a step closer to the final game. We will wrap things up by looking into the basic aspects of the game's UI.

Once you reach the end and have integrated a final boss battle, you can go back to the challenges included in each chapter and use them to improve the game and your 2D game development skills!

HASH(0xa09b4828) von 5 Sternen Not very useful 25. März 2014
Von woodx - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This isn't Unity 2D Game development. This is just instructions for how to paste in some code someone else wrote. You're really not going to learn much from this book. It does say you need to know C#, suggesting that you will learn to apply that knowledge to Unity. Well, it also assumes you know Unity fairly well, since it tells you nothing you can't learn in five minutes with the Unity documentation and mostly consists of code snippets with no actual learning attached. If you already know Unity and C#, which is what is required to get the most out of this book, I don't think you'll be buying it.

For someone with less who doesn't bring knowledge of quartenions, Vector3s or unity itself, there is no useful instruction here. Any details about applying your knowledge to Unity, and how to manage GameObjects outside of the exact code provided are lacking. If you're pretty good with code and just want to see some samples of a 2D platformer, this might work for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

HASH(0xa0da22e8) von 5 Sternen Wait a month for a real book to come out. 6. Juni 2014
Von thomas carol - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Code books that allow a novice to follow the steps to make a program without actually knowing what you're doing aren't uncommon. They can let a student tweak a working model and learn how tweak stable code without breaking it. That isn't possible with this book. Following the steps in the first chapter, I had to fix typos in the code it told me to type, and remove large chunks from an imported file before I could test code the book expected to compile without errors.

This is the literary equivalent of shovelware. The book clearly wasn't tested and was released to be the first book talking about Unity's native 2d support. If you want to learn about making 2d games in Unity, try their free tutorials or wait for a professional group to release a book.

HASH(0xa09c4630) von 5 Sternen Copy Pasta that code! 11. April 2014
Von Sang Han - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I have this book through safaribooks.

This book is short fast and rushed. No explanation of code written. The book will just tell you to copy paste it's code into your IDE without explaining. You need to have prior coding experience to understand any of this book which it doesn't say in the beginning of "who is this book for." Online tutorials on Unity 2d are better documented and explained better then this book. Avoid this book if you need more ramp up time to unity and c#.

HASH(0xa09b4744) von 5 Sternen Not for those freshly converting to unity 20. Mai 2014

I bought this book in the hopes of helping bridge the gap from XNA over to Unity. Unfortunately, this was not the book I was looking for. This is a fairly thin book with even thinner explanation or reason why the author is doing what they do. Leaving the expectation that the reader is to just copy wholesale from the book, without question or concern. Even at endgame, the final product isn't all that elaborate and leaves a lot of questions on the table.

I personally would have loved to see more topics covered or even more explanation of what was there. That said, I cannot recommend this book as I don't see the utility it possesses.

HASH(0xa0b84018) von 5 Sternen Might be better to learn elsewhere... 26. April 2014
Von Tim - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
At first glance this book seems to be a promising step into creating 2D games utilizing the new native 2D development tools that were introduced in Unity 4.3. However, before the end of Chapter 1 that impression was all but completely shattered.

The book’s author states early on that it is expected that the reader has an understanding of both the fundamentals of Unity editor and C# programming. There is no real prerequisite knowledge listed and a novice programmer will quickly be thrown for a loop if they lack understanding of programming concepts like event handlers, event listeners, and state machines. The author’s approach to the book’s code implementation is one of copy/paste and look at the results. Although there is quite a bit of commenting within the code files that explain the fundamental actions the code is performing and when, there is little explanation of why. This lack of explanation to the reasoning behind the structure of the code makes any knowledge this book provides fall into a category of “learning to know” rather than “learning to do”. I do agree with the way the author has structured the code provided, being that it is extensible if you have the knowledge to take advantage of it. However, coming from the perspective of a former teacher, the methodology by which the end product is reached in this book is one that I refer to as “Sloppy and Paste”. I feel that providing any “learning materials” to a student that simply require copying of an existing product without explanation as to the fundamentals and reasoning behind it fails to make this book a worthwhile endeavor for anyone that actually wants learn fundamental principles of the subject.

There is a good bit of information provided that could help someone get used to navigating Unity’s 2D development tools, but once again the primary approach in the book is one of mimicry with very little explanation of the benefits or downfalls of the author’s given approach. Personally, I have spent thousands of hours teaching software and through it all I tried to avoid going the easy route and just telling my students to do something without given them a reason to follow a given process in the future.

The project provided with this book would be better used by any reader through a process of code dissection. Looking at the end product that is provided via the publisher’s website will give you a fully working, albeit simple, 2D game that contains all the fundamental properties of a 2D platformer. One could then look at the code, attempt to determine what it is doing and when they get confused jump on the internet to find the answers they are looking for. I won’t disagree that this book contains information on Unity’s 2D development tools, however, a curious beginner would be better served following the tutorials provided by Unity Technologies on their website.
