2D Game Programming in Unity [Video]

More Information
  • Create a concentration game framework.
  • Create a minesweeper game framework.
  • Write C# code in MonoDevelop that spans from beginner to advanced techniques.
  • Design games that are playable on mobile devices and on the web.
  • How to use prefabs to make programming games quick and easy.
  • Using player preferences to save scores.
  • Publish games to the web and various mobile devices.
  • How to code a pause menu.

This course will teach you to develop complicated games using procedurally generating techniques. With the use of prefabs and randomness, this course will discuss the creating of two puzzle games: Concentration and Minesweeper.

The first two sections of the course comprise of creating a concentration game, the procedural generation along with logic addition for the Minesweeper game, and finally the last part that covers the steps required to build, host, and share a Unity game using WebGL. In the third and the final section, we’ll talk about the steps required to build, host, and share a Unity game using WebGL.

Style and Approach
