0. Introduction

Hey, you! Welcome to Bolt! 

In this tutorial you'll be creating a simple platformer game with Unity and Bolt without writing a single line of code. Here's the lesson plan:

  1. Project Setup
  2. Character Controller
  3. Spikes & Death
  4. Level Change
  5. Head-Up Display (HUD)
  6. Doors & Keys
  7. Health & Damage
  8. Enemies & AI
  9. Projectile Attack
  10. Pause Menu
  11. Main Menu
  12. Conclusion

Once finished, the game will look like this:

Because we want to dive straight into Bolt, we'll provide you with a project with all the sprites, scenes and prefabs already there. The only thing you will need to add is the game logic!

All the sprites and assets from the game were downloaded from Kenney Assets and are freely available and redistributable under CC 1.0 license.

Important: This tutorial assumes you have basic knowledge of Unity and will not cover things unrelated to Bolt such as animations, prefabs, 2D rendering, etc.


Let's get started!
