Is it easy to Develop Games?
There is a myth around us that developing games are way too hard. But it is not. Don’t get me wrong it is not something that anyone can do. But if you have a really strong will to learn then it is not hard. You or anyone can learn building games. The only hard part in game designing is the imagination, so if you are good enough to think about a game, then bringing in to life is not that hard. We have some really awesome tools and frameworks that makes the development very very easy.
Android Game Development Course for Beginners
Even with the strong will of learning, you need a direction or guide to get started. And that is why I made this course for everyone out there who want to learn building Android Games. This is an absolutely FREE course for everyone.
The Game we will build
Before starting the course, if you want to check the final product of the course (The game that we will build in this course), you can check it on Play Store. So get the game Jungle Run 2D on PlayStore.
Check the Course on YouTube
Who Can Join & Requirements?
The above course is for everyone, and the things that you need to get started are:
- A decent Computer (Desktop or Laptop)
- Unity Game Engine
- Visual Studio Code
And everything that I mentioned here is absolutely free, and you don’t need to spend even a penny on anything.
Right now we just need these things, but you will build your own project, you may need to design the Game Character, Backgrounds and Other Objects. And this part is a different thing, requires different tools like Photoshop, Illustrator (For 2D Games). But you do not need to worry about these things, because you just started learning and focusing on too many things at a simultaneously will make you get confused. I already designed everything that we need to build our Game in this course. And you can download the assets from the download section below.
Apart from the tools, it is very important that you know about basics of Object Oriented Programming. The language we are going to use in this course is C#. But even if you don’t know about C# you can follow this course. But it is important that you understand Object Oriented Programming or else it would be difficult for you to catch it up. Still if you want you can try.
Now, What are you waiting for? Start Learning Now.
Here are the downloads that you need in this course.

No, you can not, you need to use Unity that do not supports java. But you can catchup easily if you follow the course with me. Still if you want to learn with Java you can check this post.
You keep making great stuff (Y)
Are these game assets copyright free??
I am using Visual Studio , i copied your code but i am getting some errors and couldn’t figure out. Plz help me.
Don’t copy the code, there are too many things to take care of and hence copying won’t work and it’s error prone.
Instead just clone my git repository.
In GroundGenerator it shows error,
plse tell me how to fix it.
Explain what is the error. And also try downloading my source code.
