    For those interested in Unity 2D there is no better place to start than this course. It is presented in a friendly manner and the in depth explanations of the various parts of game creation in unity from scripting to physics and sprite importing makes it not only a course to follow along with, its a course to make us understand.

    I know the game in this course doesn’t look flashy but this is an amazing course if you are looking to learn Unity and C#. The instructor covers a lot and everything is explained without being rushed. Don’t pass this one up.

    I’m about 25% done with this course. It’s very high quality and interactive. I’ve paid considerable amounts of money for coding tutorials before and this is a real value compared to what I’ve experienced in the past. If you’ve every wanted to get your hands dirty making games in unity and/or C# this course should be right up your alley.

    Worked through a third of the course by now, and I gotta say it is really good, just knowing the scope ahead excites me to push forward. It’s also the first time I rate 5 Stars! It’s really good splitted into nice and easy to follow chunks as James goes on explaining just everything in a very comprehensive way. I already learned and understood more than in most of the other Unity courses I tried, and I tried several, most even can’t compete with that scope. I highly recommend that course.

    Very well presented and nice to follow James always seems to know what else is needed in the project to make the game function just that little bit better. great to follow along with.

    Seems to be easy enough to follow so far. He explains things in details. A bit quick at times but nothing pausing and rewinding can’t solve.

    This is my second course from James and it was the same excellent standard. I think James is an engaging teacher, I am learning a lot and at the end I have a decent looking game, ready for me to customise and add content/levels to. I have given this 4 stars due to how old the course is, it doesn’t use Tilemap but aside from that everything here is still useful to learn, the module is still relevant. I’m looking forward to my next course from James.
