- [Voiceover] Well, you only need to match three…in a row to clear pieces,…matching four or more in row creates…a bonus piece with special properties.…These special pieces will clear an entire row…or column when matched.…We're going to create two new prefabs.…One will be a piece that can clear rows…and an other piece that can clear columns.…They will also play a special animation…to differentiate them from other pieces…and let the player know…whether they clear a row or column.…Other than that, they will similar to our normal pieces.…Drag the normal prefab into the scene.…
Select it…and choose break preface instance…from the game object menu.…Rename the object to…row clear piece prefab.…In the inspector,…remove the animator component.…We'll be adding a new one in just a minute.…In the animations folder,…create a new animation…called row clear piece animation.…This animation will move…the piece from side to side.…The animation lets the player know…that this piece clears the row.…
Click on the animation…and check the box for loop time…
