This tutorial shows how to make a simple shoot ’em up game using only logic bricks (no Python coding in this tutorial). This tutorial is suitable for beginners to the Blender game engine.
The tutorial uses a ready made model of a jet plane that can be downloaded from my website. You can make the model yourself (follow the link below) or you can use you a different model.
Tutorial showing how to make the jet plane –
My website –
The steps followed in the tutorial are –
Scale and position the jet
Duplicate the jet to make the target jet and move it to a different layer
Make the bullet/missile
Change Blender Render to Blender Game and set up the physics for the target jet and the bullet
Go back to the original layer and add logic bricks to the jet plane for moving left and right
Add an empty object to the scene which will be the insertion point for the bullets
Copy the left and right logic bricks from the jet to the empty
Add logic bricks to the empty that will add bullets to the scene when the space bar is pressed
Add another empty object to the scene which will be the insertion point for the target jets
Add logic bricks to the empty that automatically generates a series of target jets
Turn gravity off
Note: In the edit object actuator used to add bullets to the scene I forgot to limit the life of the bullets, with a value of say 150 in the Time property.
The jet plane model and the final Blender file can be downloaded from my website –
