Field vs. Property

Why are we using fields vs. properties for some items in this class? For instance, why isn't _pathStep turned into a property?

1 Answer

As I understand it: we're storing _pathStep as a field rather than a property because it doesn't need to be accessed outside of the Invader.cs class.
