Course Content This course covers several key areas, including game development, design, art and audio. We'll begin by creating the game logic, starting with the AI, which will allow the enemy to follow the player and attack them.
As well as the different AI states, which will allow the enemies to decide whether they should attack or introduction to game design, if they are dead or alive. We will put together an enemy spawner which will allow us to spawn enemies at random points in our map.
This will add some challenge as the player won't know which direction the enemies are coming from. The spawner will be highly flexible and you can add as many points as you like without breaking the system.
We will introduce a player attack, so the player can attack enemies and the enemies will take damage eventually dying. We'll create a hit particle from scratch to make the enemy appear as if they're taking damage.
And with the particles for taking damage we'll also add a hit sound and a death sound for the enemies. And we'll finish off by introducing a high quality enemy model from the Asset Store.
