Make A 2D Arcade Game in a Weekend (Springer/apress)
On the surface, the book looks like a great way to quickly hack together a little Arkanoid clone and get your feet wet with the engine. After doing an OK job at introducing Unity, versions, interface, etc. the book quickly falls apart. Vital instructions are either incomplete or altogether missing from the book. If you can finish this book you probably didn’t need to read it in the first place.
