Learn arcade mechanics, plane movement, and more for Unreal Engine games!
Planes are a popular subject matter for many video game genres thanks to their unique and inspiring ability to fly in real life. Not only are they a fun and exciting challenge for programmers to master developing, but allow you to create novel, air-based experiences for players to enjoy.
Using only the Blueprints Visual Scripting System, you’ll explore how to build a simple arcade-style game where players must guide a plane through rings laid out in an obstacle course. While constructing the project, you’ll develop key skills in tracking scores, working with different styles of movement, removing objects, and much more.
Whether you want to create a realistic flight simulator or simply learn new game development skills, this course will help you further your techniques in how you approach different kinds of game subjects.
This course assumes familiarity with Unreal Engine.
You will learn how to:
- Set up arcade-appropriate inputs
- Program pitch, roll, and yaw for plane movement
- Control plane acceleration
- Build a ring-based obstacle course
- Track scoring with appropriate UI
- Create 3D environments with Quixel models
… 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.
