Game Concept

Snake 3D is a basic concept in which the player navigates a 3D snake through a gridbased Playfield. The snake constantly moves forwards, so the Player has to act accordingly to avoid Obstacles and it’s own tail. Eat pickups to grow the snake and increase the score.

Unity (2021.3.3f1 used in this course)

  • We will create the basic navigation mechanics
  • We will create different Game Modes
  • We create a Menu and UI panels
