Course Description

Unity 3D – Learn the Unity 3D Shuriken Particle System

Study 365


The shuriken particle system functionality in unity allows developers to polish up the games with features such as the extra flash, fizzle and pop in order to further improve the quality and effects of the games. Proper usage of this functionality can also allow developers to successfully add a subtle amount of realism to the games which makes the games more engaging and attractive. The particle system can be added to the game scene in two different ways. You can either create a Particle System GameObject or create a GameObject and add the particle system component.

There are millions of games available in the current world and millions more are getting created at this very moment. However, only a few of these games are actually engaging and holds our attention the longest. One of the reasons for this is the poor quality of the games’ visuals.
