To compare two statements and run 58 Chapter 4 2D Unity (Early Access), © 2015 by Jeff W. Murray some code if both are true, you can use the AND expression, &&. Essentially, && means if this statement AND this statement are true, then run the code between the curly brackets. x >= boundaryRight. This part of the conditional statement asks if the x position of the ball is greater than or equal to the value in boundaryRight. Basically, it asks if the ball has hit the right side of the screen. ” If these conditions are true, then the code between the if statement’s curly brackets runs.
In Unity, scale is unspecified. It is measured in units, which you can choose. A unit could be a pixel, a meter, a light year, or another unit measurement: it doesn’t make a difference to the engine. In this case, let’s set it to 16 so one of our pixel bricks is one unit. In the Game panel, the brick sprite appears in the center. It’s small right now because the default Pixels To Units size is 100 pixels per unit. Although this size works for games with detailed graphics and larger images, it doesn’t work for the simplistic retro graphics we’ll be using in this book.
In this case, the statement asks moveDirection to tell us the value of the x variable. You can combine the conditions of if statements using logical operators. For example, you might want to compare two or more conditions, which is what we need to do in this example. To compare two statements and run 58 Chapter 4 2D Unity (Early Access), © 2015 by Jeff W.
