How to create a score system

I’ve plowed through tons of articles and still haven’t figured out how to make a score system where when you collide with an object your score goes up and the object disappears.

You’ll probably want a custom behavior script with an OnCollisionEnter() hook. You can read more about collision functions here. Unity offers many collision components, which you can read about here.

To make an object “disappear”, I assume you want to call Destroy() on it.
