It’s turning into a real game!!! I was literally giddy at my computer playing with this. I’ve been really taking my time with the tutorials to make sure I fully understand the material so still got a way to go, probably a solid day or 2 but boy it has been good so far. With Unity I like how straightforward everything is. I also LOVE the Inspector. It really helps to make things easier. For example, today I used an array in Unity for the first time. I was surprised to learn that the inspector creates a drop down that allows you to change the size of your array as needed and that to reference an object you just drag and drop the object onto its designated index in the array and that is it! Like, what is this sorcery?

Here are a couple things I learned today:

Challenge I faced:

Tomorrow I will be creating a shield power up and working on the UI!! It’s getting close and it is very exciting indeed.

Have a good night.
