Game Development for Kids with GDevelop - Particle Effect of Laser


In this post, we are going to see how to make the particle effect of laser.

A lot of 2D games and the 3D games where your main character makes use of the weapon or even the magic spell. You can use the laser effect to show the offensive response of the character. So this effect can be pretty much effective around the games where they can be used to kill enemies, NPC characters etc.

So before we can move with the effect. I want you to download the gdevelop game editor. Also create one blank project as we are going to be only adding the particle emitter object onto the screen. So it helps when you are adding the blank project canvas into the screen. And the black background is much better for the effect visibility too.

You can also add this effect after watching the tutorial into your existing games. You wont be needing any external assets as well. So just have to watch how the settings appear in the object and use them for making the final effect.

So check out the video below for the particle effect of Laser in GDevelop.

As you can guess this is one of the most popular effect. And it is found in most of the retro games too. You can deploy it instantly and also make use of multiple colors into them as well. It would add up as a good side character effect for the offensive actions too. Like some NPC constantly releasing the laser when the main character comes closer. So that is also possible.

So here basically your imagination seems to be the limit. You have to adjust as per the imagination of the effect and where to use them.

I hope the current tutorial was useful to you.
