While working on my latest game, I found it very difficult to find a tutorial that explained how to make a character move by tapping either the left or right side of the screen. My first strategy was to create two buttons, but then I discovered there is no press and hold function with native Unity buttons. So instead I had to build buttons to give you a visual reference (press down effect) and then I use the screens width as a way to detect finger position. Overall it ended up being very simple to do and I share that with you in this video.
As always if you have a better way of doing it, please let me and this community know in the comments.
