Acerca del Curso

The device or "platform" that a game is developed for and played on has a massive impact on the game development process. In this hands-on course you will explore how to develop a game for a variety of modern platforms, including Web, Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and Android. While building a complete game, you will learn intermediate and advanced game development techniques in the Unity game engine. By the end of the course, you will understand how to develop, refine, package, and prepare your game for distribution on a variety of game platforms. Particular attention will be given to developing a 2D platformer game that supports multiple forms of input (keyboard/mouse, controller, and touch), works across multiple forms of output (screen size, screen resolution, sound), and performs well on a variety of computing devices....

Great lectures from Brian Winn: very clear and his assets very clear as well an organized. It will be very good to complement the lectures with a short document summarizing the theory.

Great lectures and engaging professor; however, you're basically just paying for video lectures since the course admins/mentors seem inactive.

All courses would have been 5-star if the assignments were checked by tutors and not by peers.

I like the instructor and love the way he narrates for someone like me who gets impatient and just reads through the script while he's talking then skips ahead. Everything is in the script - where I need to click, what I should be looking for, etc. Since I already know how to program too, it helps that I can easily skim and then skip videos I already understand. Instructor is very engaging.

My only issue is that some of the videos are outdated (refers to libraries that are obsolete and no longer available). Would have been better if the instructor more regularly updates the videos to reflect changes. That said, the discussion forums have been invaluable in finding work-arounds to these issues and have provided answers to every issue I had.

This class (the fourth in the specialization) required a different version of Unity 3D in order to complete (compared to the first course in the specialization). Using a borrowed laptop, I was not permitted to upgrade to a new version by laptop owner. Signing up for the 5-course specialization and paying in advance was a ripoff since the software requirements changed in between course 3 and 4. Coursera gives no refunds for a 5-course specialization if you have completed the first course.

Excellent course. Combined with the basics of the first course, this was a great opportunity to get a feeling for building something a little bit bigger. For people with zero coding experience, it might be a bit overwhelming, but it's not really a programming specialization. Combined with the other modules of this specialization this is a good practice to prepare for the capstone project.

This course provides you with *everything* you need to build your own 2D platform game.

The first 3 weeks are hands on courses, and by week 4 the training wheels come off and you are to build your own platformer to show to your colleagues.

Packed with inside information, good teacher, if you are interested in Unity or Video Games this course is for you!

Great course, really covered so many details! I really enjoyed this one. This course, together with an intro course, is what I've been really expecting from this specialization. I especially liked the idea with the assignment being given only on the last week of the course. Already recommended those 2 courses.

Very nice practical course, if you want to master Unity3D to build 2D game Coursera-way and not use official documentation. But I don't think that the name of course is correct, because there is definitely not much information about "modern platforms" and it's differences - this part is given very briefly.

This is a great course for learning game development in Unity. I had a reasonable amount of experience programming and using the engine but this taught me good techniques for writing efficient code and organising my projects properly. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get into Game Development!

This course is a real level up from the other courses. You go back to Unity with the base understanding of how games need to be constructed from beginning till end, and with that in mind, develop a 2D game from scratch. I was thoroughly impressed, and as always the lecturer was awesome. Thanks Brian.

I loved this course, if you want to design and develop a complete and functional 2D videogame and distribute it on PC,MAC,Android,IOS, etc, do not hesitate, this is the course perfect to you, I've learnt a lot of things. Thanks to MSU staff, they're really a good professionals.

Very good course, the final project is a challenge butt doable if you take your time to make it and polish it... It needs an update because the unity version is almost too diferent of the one that the instructor has but if you are familiar with unity it makes no difference.

Great Courses offered in this specialization especially this and intro to game development , didn't hear about Michigan State University before this but this is brilliant course and Professor is great you learn while doing , not learning then doing.All the best.

Fun course, especially as a follow-up to the first course in the specialization! It was actually better than the first one, because instead of one whole game per week, we worked on creating one game, and got to polish and solidify the gameplay and aesthetics.

Amazing course with a lot of useful source for making games using Unity3D. The instructor teaches many important topics such as character and enemy animations, UI design, writing clear scripts and building games for multiple platforms in a very detailed way.

This pretty much wraps everything up from the previous courses in the specialisation. The 2D platformer you create brings forward a few new challenges which gives valuable experience in being creative with your code and also with game feel and design.

Massively helpful in learning Unity. I passed Unity certification by going through this course and the first course (Intro to game development). The instructor is awesome. The class projects are well design and the forum rocks.

This course was really great for improving my Unity skills, specially concerning programming on C#. A very hands on type of course! Makes you feel ready to develop games for mobile platforms and computers alike.

This course was fun! I didn't expect it to be so , since it's just about 2D platform game, but it was.

I checked some of the other students work, and they made some really nice things!

This course was a blast! It dived a bit deeper into Unity compared to "Introduction to Game Development", the course outline and steps worked great and I learned a lot.

Great course to give you fundamental experience creating a 2D platformer in Unity. Learned a lot and have a solid library of scripts to help me with my next project.
