After much deliberation, I’ve decided to put the source code for the Tetris clone tutorials on the website to purchase and download. I’ve been going back and forth with wanting to list it for free and charging for it. So here’s the deal, I make these tutorials on YouTube in my spare time. I don’t get paid to do these but there seems to be enough demand to keep me busy for years to come. I would love to continue doing these tutorials but they are taking up a lot of time. So here’s why I am charging for the source code. I’m not doing it to be mean or greedy, I’m doing it to justify continuing to create awesome tutorials.

If you don’t want to pay for the source code, feel free to watch the tutorials on YouTube for free, they will walk you through creating everything that is in the source code bundle. The bundle is a little nicer because it includes updated graphics and has an updated code base that works with the latest version of Unity.

One more thing, If you want, you can find a coupon code on the WeeklyCoder YouTube channel which will give you a 20% off discount, because I’m a nice guy.

Here’s the link to purchase the source code. http://weeklycoder.com/product/tetris-clone-bundle/

So I’ve been working on a game to release to the new AppleTV store and found myself needing some artwork. To be more specific, I needed an image of the new Siri Remote so that I could label the buttons for the players.

In fear of my app being rejected for using any of Apple’s own artwork, I created my own drawing to represent the new Siri remote for the AppleTV.

Please feel free to use this however you like. There are 2 attachments. One is a PNG and the other is PSD.

So… you’ve got a useful method that does some pretty cool stuff but you don’t know where to put it. You’ve probably labeled this in your mind as a helper method which can be easily defined as a method that specifically aids in one or more repetitive tasks.

Great you say.. lets just create a new C# script and call it HelperMethods and throw it in there. This is not a bad idea and honestly I used to do this a lot myself but… there is a more elegant approach to this.

What if there was a way that you could add functionality to an already existing class? What if for instance you wrote a method which could easily be part of the Random class that is part of the UnityEngine?

This is actually exactly what I did. I wrote a method that returns not just a random range between min and max values but found that I needed to return a random number with specific numbers being excluded between the min and max values.

This is a perfect example of a method that should be an extension method to the Random class. So how do we do it? Its actually really simple. First know that we can place all of our extension methods within one simple class. Lets call this class ExtensionMethods.
