    There is code in the AngryBots demo that shows you how to implement Joysticks which are "thumbsticks" for mobile games.

    Thanks for the help. I'm wanting to do it in C# and notice that those are in Javascript. I'm gonna try and see if I can convert them myself but if you know of where I can find it already converted that be awesome. Anyways, thanks again for the help.

    Hi,

    It's not really that hard to convert them to C#. I was just going to be doing that as well for some future projects.

    I really do find porting things from javascript in to C# in Unity greatly increases your understanding of the mechanics of the logic. I would recommend doing that. If you already know C# a bit I can't see those scripts taking that long to port.
