In the latest version of unity, you’re given the option to load various assets into your project from the Window > Asset Store panel. In the link below, you’ll download a very simple version of the Shadowbots project featured below. Your task is to examine how the current game works and then mod it into your own unique playing experience. Below, you will also find a series of scripts that you can add to the game to enhance playability.

Your goal is to make your game both challenging, fun, and different than your peers. Be creative, feel free to try new things, and use each other as resources.
