This was a good course for what it was. I am iOS developer but have no experience with Unity, C#, or making games. This was a good introduction into the process. He does go a little fast at times manipulating Unity, I had to keep pausing to catch up. Other than that, good course.

I love the part when he responds every question that i have <3

I did not need this part to build my game.

Very good course, special for beginners. Good explanation, hes not going to slow or fast, steady path. Love it.

By Matt Simons on 4 months ago

Loved the course, very quick, concise and to the point. No wasted time at all.

The last bit with the Ads wiring up is outdated but the rest are still relevant in 2019 (especially if you use the new Unity Hub to install and use Unity 2018.2.21f1). I still learned quite a lot of easy and powerful techniques from this course and it does put it all together in a good pace and logical way so that you can see the whole process and show how building a complete game from start to finish is possible.

For me as a beginner to Unity a great course. But I think, it would have been a bit better to have more time spend for the advertisement implementation instead of the game making process, for me this was the main reason to watch this course ;)

So I learned how to use Unity and code in C# from a different course here on Udemy. I purchased this course so I could develop mobile games as well. The only complaint I have with this course, because I currently use Unity, is the explanations. Explaining the functions of code or game objects are a bit brushed over, but that doesn't change the fact that you still learn quite a bit and you end up making an awesome game.

The course was really good. Fast (I finished it just in 2 days), simple and containing many concepts that are easy to understand. It is easier than other courses i tried in the past (and didn`t finished, because they were pretty slow and long comparing to this one).I kind of miss more information at the end - in the publishing part. I know the google play terms & conditions are pretty fast changing, but I think even the "old" process would be good to see - for better imagination about what it is all about.

This was a real nicely put together tutorial. Now, It was quite easily understandable for me since I've spent some time in Unity but I can assume some part of the coding was too advanced for some of the beginners. Tutor doesn't explain the code or the syntax much. He is just like "Don't worry this will work."This is not something you want to see in a tutorial. But I loved it. It didn't made a difference for me. Thank you for this.
