Game Development How to Make a Video Game Pickups Script the Fly Pickup

Game stops.

When I press play and I jump to the left, my game pauses itself. Why is that?

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class FlyPickup : MonoBehaviour {

    void OnTriggerEnter(Collider other) {

        // If the Collider other is tagged with "Player"...
        if (other.CompareTag ("player")) {

            Destroy (gameObject);

Hi Cristian,

When the game pauses itself like this, it means an error occurred. You should be able to view these errors in the Console window.

If you click the Console tab after the game pauses itself, what does it say?
