I made this over the last couple of hours this morning. Its very basic - just one level - but it does function as it should

I re-used some assets from my pong game i made yesterday. I didnt use any tutorials for this, i reffered to the unity script reference guide a lot though and did check some of my pong scripts to see how i implemented certain things in the past.

 

Any feedback is appreciated. i'm mainly making these simple games as a way to get my head around Unity, i have 'some' c# knowledge but in the past i have been put off Unity as its a little bit scary when you first open it up!!

 

Im hoping that i'll improve by doing these games, so what im wondering is should i:

 

  1. Spend more time on breakout. Implement more levels, polish it up a bit, maybe try and bring in some power-ups?
  2. Move onto a new project?

Advice is taken gladly :)

Too bad there's no Unity Web Player for linux. So I can't play :/

a word of advice to any newbies - plan your software before you start coding! what started as an attempt to make a breakout clone has turned into a coding mess with me adding methods into classes which shouldnt really have them.

 

Im going to start again tomorrow and try and design it before i start coding.
