Procedural generation of 2D maps in Unity - Procedural level generation is a technique to create game scenes on the fly following specific criteria completely at random. In principle that means that with each new game our protagonists will potentially face different landscapes on their journey. As developers, by introducing this simple method we can not only enhance the gameplay experience but also increase the re-playability value to the players. As designers we have a total control over the look & feel of the procedural levels. The game will always stay fresh due to random placement of platforms, enemies and objects in the map whenever we start it. In this article we’ll look into how we can implement procedural level generator for a 2D platformer in Unity.

This makes it particularly well suited for such background content – content that is important but won’t break the game if it isn’t entirely perfect.
