Book Description

Prepare yourself to travel back to the 90s and build a game like they used to make, using today's technology. That's right; we're talking about making 2D games using Unity!

This book will help you build 2D games in Unity using the engine's 2D technologies added in Version 4.3. You'll learn the basics of importing assets and building foundation technology all the way up to full combat and boss battles! With the book's straightforward and practical approach, each chapter takes you a step closer to the final game. We will wrap things up by looking into the basic aspects of the game's UI.

Once you reach the end and have integrated a final boss battle, you can go back to the challenges included in each chapter and use them to improve the game and your 2D game development skills!

What You Will Learn

  • Create a 2D game using Unity 4.3’s native 2D technologies
  • Control collisions using layered collision management
  • Manage events using basic timed sequencing – specifically, a boss battle
  • Discover how to track the score and game state
  • Design the development and deployment of state systems for object management
  • Use C# events and delegates to pass information between objects
  • Understand the usage of Unity’s tag system
  • Make 2D sprites make other 2D sprites explode with extreme prejudice
