Learn the foundations of building strategy games in Unity!
With examples like Sim City, there is no question that strategy games are one of the most popular genres available. From resource management to strategic unit placement, strategy games give developers a way to challenge players mentally and increase replayability with options for different win strategies.
Using the popular Unity engine, you’ll master techniques related to grid placement, turn management, resource management, and more – all core skills needed for many kinds of strategy games. You’ll also learn to apply these techniques by crafting a mini Mars colony-builder game that you can expand or use in your portfolio.
By the end, you’ll gain essential knowledge in coding systems for strategy games and boost your overall knowledge of Unity game development!
This course assumes basic familiarity with C# and Unity.
You will learn how to:
- Instantiate a tile-based map
- Control UI elements to reflect resources
- Set up a turn-based game manager
- Calculate resource costs and gains
- Implement building placements with different buildings
- Limit where buildings can be placed
… and more!

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
