Arduino Game Controller for Unity Android Game - Bluetooth Serial Connection

    I have made a video game using Unity3D and have made my own game controller using Arduino (accelerometer, potentiometer , FSR etc). I currently do this via COM serial connection.

    I am now at a stage where I would like to port my Unity Game to an Android smart device and still use my arduino game controller wireless (not plugged into a computer).

    I have been doing reading and watching video tutorials. It looks like the best way to do this would be via a HC-05 bluetooth serial communication and then Plug in from the Assest store called "
    Android & Microcontrollers / Bluetooth" by Tech Tweaking?

    Just wondering if anyone has already done this and has some advice or alternative method they would recommend?

    Any feedback or advice would be much appreciated. I would love to connect with people working on similar projects and would be happy to share my Arduino knowledge and integrating Arduino into your Unity games.

    All the best with your projects!
