When designing 2d levels, we need to figure out which gameobject should be in front of another and which should be at the back. Sorting Layers and Order in Layer will solve this mystery for you. 

Sorting Layers and Order In Layer Property

Lets add buttons to the menu screen.

Adding The Buttons

Animations are a great way to provide visual feedback to the player of your game. This video shows you how to tell your player that a button was pressed. Answer is by adding animations to the button clicks.

Here's What Students Are Saying:

"I am enjoying the course, it is one of the best on Unity I have seen, Everything is explained well and the game being built seems fully featured, other tutorials often leave stuff out that you would probably like to see how to do. I would recommend this for beginners and those with some experience with Unity and C#"

"I have only just finished section 2 of the course but it is already FAR better than any other Unity course or tutorial I have found (and I did a lot of looking)! This has been a great experience so far. I feel like I will finally be able to learn the skills needed to fulfill my dream of designing and building a genuine Unity mobile game that I can actually publish. Thanks for the great course! Update: Just wanted to add how impressed I am with the speed and detail of the instructor's responses to my questions. I had some issues (totally my fault) getting things working and even after we got them resolved, Sonny made sure to respond with detailed explanations with photos to make sure I understood why the issues occurred and how the solutions actually worked. Honestly I could not be any happier with the quality of this course and its instructor. It is seriously so good!"

"This course was very great, it has a lot of small challenges to get you to use some of the features you have just learned. It is very detailed and the entire game is build very professionally with very good order and small but important details. Well-worth the price, and this will take you from beginner to pro, in no time. Just imagine being able to familiarize yourself with every single step of the way from idea to final game and how to have that very same game ONLINE on the Google Play Store in just a day's worth (just short of 20 hours) of lectures. Nothing less than incredible"

How Can This Course Help YOU?

  • Are you looking for a Unity 2d course that shows you WHAT steps to take and also explains the HOW & WHY behind each step?

  • Do you feel that existing Unity tutorials don't contain the right content to help you with your goals?

  • Are you looking to learn how to monetize your mobile games in Unity?

  • Are you searching for a simple and easy to understand course which shows you how to build a mobile platformer game, step by step?

  • Do the terms sprites and sprite sheets confuse you?

  • Do you feel lost when it comes to C# scripting?

  • Are you baffled by the process of building mobile games in Unity which look good on different screens and resolutions?

  • Are Unity 2d concepts hard for you to understand?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then i have good news! Take this course and see for yourself that all of this is actually easy.                                                                                                                              

A few years ago i was just like you, having problems with creating 2d stuff in Unity and looking for tutorials on YouTube, trying to get my head around seemingly hard concepts. None could help me get to a level where i could just start making 2d games with minimum effort. Sprite sheets, Sprite Editor, Canvas, Buttons, C# Scripting, Game Menus all seemed a bit out of reach. But i persisted. 

It's been 4 years since and it's all easy now. I've built numerous mobile games for clients as well as my own projects. I realized that this stuff was not difficult but there was not much documentation or ample video tutorials to explain things in an easy to understand manner. Right then i decided i will make an effort and share what i'd learned with others and the idea of AbleGamesDev was born. 

Waste no time and join this course and see for yourself. I'll see you inside!

"I am midway the course and the content is very engaging, the tutor is very easy to follow and detailed for you to understand why, and what he is doing and talking about. The material covered is really interesting and a good head start to understand how things work inside unity. It also gives you a good starting point to create something on your own by applying all the techniques with your own art. Questions are answered really fast with deep explanation. Thank you for this great course"

"The quality of the videos are great, he walks you through everything and tells you the who, what , when, where, and why you do things and the best practices so that you can become a great developer."

"This is the best Unity course I've ever taken. It is a complete course, very well explained. The instructor is exceptional, answers all questions in a short period of time. This course was the best choice."

"This course is amazing. I am currently a game development student in college and i only have a background in visual coding in unreal engine 4, i do not know how to use unity or how to write with c#. This course is amazing because it goes through how to use the unity engine step by step and is very beginner friendly for c# coding." 

"This course is amazing for someone new to 2D game development. The instructor guides you through each process in an easy to understand manner and the course is packed with new approaches to workflow within unity. I would highly recommend this course to someone wanting to develop 2D games and learn new processes in unity. This is one of the best game design courses I have taken so far on Udemy."
