Unity is a very popular and effective technology for creating 2D and 3D games and applications. Unity 5 is a great starting point for game developers looking to develop stunning and robust games.

We begin by explaining how to set up the Android SDK on Windows and Mac OS X and configure Unity 5 settings for the Android platform. As you progress through the chapters, you will learn to implement new and improved features of the Unity 5 engine with the aid of real-world examples. You will explore how to render high-quality graphics with physically-based shaders and global illumination to enhance your project's performance. Building on this, you will then learn to transform your native C# and JavaScript code into Unity scripts. Best practices to improve your Android games will also be discussed to help you create games fast and efficiently. Finally, putting together all these concepts, you will learn to create your own Android game from scratch. This book will teach you how to harness the benefits of different tools to become proficient at game design and development processes.
