Every lesson is structured and well thought out, covering important skills and principles. If you want to learn how to build your own games without writing a single line of computer code, this class is definitely for you!!
This class teaches you how to build an entire top down game, including some really great features like AI and collision detection, completely from scratch. And it's really easy to follow, definitely give it a try, it's a lot of fun, and very informative!!
Good class, really unusual but very interesting and rewarding!
