Join Kelley Hecker for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Building a Match 3 Game with Unity.
- [Voiceover] I hope you've enjoyed this course…and that you're ready to take your game to the next level.…As you bring this game closer to release,…here's some things you might want to consider.…While we've covered a lot in this course…there's many more things you can do to polish your game.…For example, right now we don't reshuffle the board…when there's no possible matches.…You'll probably want to shuffle the board…so that the player doesn't get deadlocked.…You might also want to make it…so that the initial board doesn't have any matches on it,…so that pieces don't get cleared right as the game starts.…
There are many more features you can add…to your Match 3 game.…Most Match 3 games have many more piece types…than what we've implemented here.…You might want to implement a special piece…that clears all pieces in a box around it,…or make it so that when you swap two special pieces,…they combine for an even bigger effect.…If you're interested in taking this game…to mobile platforms, then check out my course,…
