Tower defence games are continuing to gain in popularity online. In this course I am going to show you how to create your own zombie tower defence game.
When I was creating this course I was initially thinking, should it be an overhead tower defence style game, or should it be a first person shooter style game. Well, when you have two great ideas, why not combine them. So this is a Hybrid of both overhead point and click as well as first person shooter.
The techniques covered in this course can be used to make any type of defence style games. Think of this as a template that you can use again and again and you can customise the game any way you like to realise your vision.
So what is covered in the course:
We develop a system for placing props into the level, with the ability to change items using an easy to create User Interface
Items can be placed freehand, or by pressing the spacebar, can be made to snap together either horizontally or vertically
Each item will have different purposes. Some will simply block the zombies, some will damage the zombies, some will blow them up, and in the case of the gun turrets, these will target and shoot the zombies
Once you have laid out your items the zombies will then begin spawning into the scene and you will enter into first person mode
You can change between overhead and first person modes to quickly navigate the map
We will setup a range of weapon types, ammo amounts and damage styles for each weapon, including sniper scope for the sniper rifle
You will have access to six zombies that I created for this course. You can use them in any of your other games too
The objective is to defend the tower. You must kill all the zombies on each level to unlock the next level
This course can be taken by anyone using the free Unity game engine. A basic understanding of C# code is suggested for you to make the most of this course. By the end of the course you will have another completed game in your portfolio. You will have developed your skills to an intermediate level and be ready to make your own Unity games.
So why not enroll today, and I look forward to seeing you in my course.
