It’s that time, when you put together what you’ve learned in this course and create a game. It doesn’t have to be “award-winning” or the game you dream about making before you fall asleep at night — those games are for when you have more experience.
This game is just to help solidify what you’ve learned and to prove to yourself that you’re gaining ground!
Here’s your assignment (if you choose to accept it) — using what you now know about 2D game development with Unity, create a simple game from scratch. You can use the art assets we’ve been using throughout the course, or dig up some others. To help with that, the second video below shows some of my favorite places to get free and cheap game art.
Also, I created a “cheat sheet” that will remind you what we’ve discovered in this course. It lists the main API calls we’ve used and gives you handy links to the Unity documentation for those calls. Here’s a link to that PDF document:

Download that and print it out if possible — I’ll be going through how it’s useful in the first video below.
