Overview of this book

Unity has established itself as an overpowering force for developing mobile games. If you love mobile games and want to learn how to make them but have no idea where to begin, then this book is just what you need. This book takes a clear, step-by-step approach to building an endless runner game using Unity with plenty of examples on how to create a game that is uniquely your own. Starting from scratch, you will build, set up, and deploy a simple game to a mobile device. You will learn to add touch gestures and design UI elements that can be used in both landscape and portrait mode at different resolutions. You will explore the best ways to monetize your game projects using Unity Ads and in-app purchases before you share your game information on social networks. Next, using Unity’s analytics tools you will be able to make your game better by gaining insights into how players like and use your game. Finally, you’ll learn how to publish your game on the iOS and Android App Stores for the world to see and play along.

Displaying Facebook name and profile pic

A good thing to do is to personalize our game to fit our player. So, with that, once the player logs in, we will welcome them and display their image on the screen by following these steps:

  1. Go to the MainMenuBehaviour script once again. From there, we'll need to add a new using statement as to display an image and change text we need to use Unity's UI system:
using UnityEngine.UI; // Text / Image 
  1. Afterward, we will update the ShowMainMenu function and add some new functions to use:
    public void ShowMainMenu() 
        if (facebookLogin != null && mainMenu != null) 
            if (FB.IsLoggedIn)
