Publish to the Google Play Store
This course explores the 2D features of Unity through creation of a dungeon escape game with Unity ad implementation to generate revenue, and by publishing the game to the Google Play Store. The course begins with an introduction to TileMap, which gives developers the ability to paint different worlds! Students will then begin setting up the player for combat and developing attack systems found within popular hack & slash type games. Students will also develop a shop system that grants players the ability to purchase items. If the player can’t afford an item, they can choose to watch a Unity Ad in exchange for 100 gems! This way, players are rewarded for watching ads, helping make the game profitable. Throughout this course, students will explore intermediate to advanced topics in C#, including class inheritance, polymorphism, abstract classes, and interfaces, which help build modular systems within games and applications. This course has over 50 challenge activities, where students will create their own unique code base and improve problem solving skills.
Why Learn Mobile Game Development with Unity?
The global gaming industry is experiencing unprecedented growth, with the mobile platform now taking the lead. NewZoo estimates that mobile games will generate over $70 billion in revenue, accounting for 51% of gaming revenue across all platforms. Mobile is the fastest growing platform, with over 10 years of double digit growth. Unity Technologies is helping foster this growth, by providing a free and user friendly environment to create elegant games in. According to Unity Technologies, in 2016, 34% of the top 1000 free mobile games were created in Unity – more than any other non-proprietary engine. Compared to other engines, Unity provides easy portability to both iOS and Android, allowing for mass dissemination of a mobile game.
