Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Cleaning up the obstacles, part of Unity 5: 2D Essential Training (2015).
- Now, we're gonna create a script…that will manage our obstacle.…We want it to actually change randomly to different sprites.…This way it looks different each time…it's spawned out.…This will also be a good way for us to implement iRecycle…interface that we just used,…so that every time a new instance is created,…instead of relying on having to instantiate it from scratch,…we'll take advantage of the fact that the object pool…will automatically call restart and shut down…so every time a new obstacle is restarted,…we'll randomly pick a new sprite and display…that instead.…
Let's go into our "Script" folder, and create…a new class called "Obstacles."…And then we'll open this up in MonoDevelop.…So the first thing we're gonna wanna do,…is implement our interface for iRecycle.…We can do this by adding a comma, after MonoBehavior,…and typing in iRecycle.…Now if we were to save this script,…and go back over to Unity, you'll start seeing an error.…If we look at the console, you'll see that "obstacles"…does not implement the interface member "irecycle restart,"…
Super Zombie Runner riffs off the popular endless runner genre: a one-button casual game that's not only fun to play but exciting to build. The focus of the work is a reusable code base that you can extend and make your own, while learning the basics of object pooling, supporting multiple screen resolutions, tracking scoring, and multi-platform publishing. Along the way, Jesse covers key Unity features, such as working with sprites, creating animations, and leveraging the UI components.
