Explore turn-based combat systems for 2D RPGs!
Popularized early on by games like Final Fantasy, turn-based combat remains a popular staple around the world for many 2D RPGs. From being able to add strategic elements to your games to creating easy-to-recognize systems, mastering turn-based combat offers you many opportunities for creating iconic battles.
Through this course, you’ll build a micro project in Unity focused specifically on how to build a turn-based combat system for your RPG projects. You’ll learn important skills such as creating different styles of attack, handling combat formulas, and reflecting this visually with 2D assets and the Unity UI system.
No matter how complex a turn-based system you want to make, this course will make sure you have the fundamentals to create and expand your system however you need for your 2D games!
You will learn how to:
- Set up 2D turn-based-ready scenes
- Manage player and enemy turns
- Build dynamic UIs for combat
- Implement attack and healing actions
- Construct enemy AI
- Render movement and projectiles

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.
