Understand the basics of Unity but don’t know how to link them together? Learn to tie different elements together as you make a simple Unity game. Featuring a playable cube that can move, jump, and collect coins, the player will collect coins and attack enemies as they progress through the levels.

You will learn how to:

  • Set up a new project and its folder structure
  • Create, move, rotate, scale and snap objects
  • Calculate movement based on input
  • Collide with objects using a rigidbody
  • Enemy movement using a waypoint system

… and more!
