Hi guys, I’m pretty new to UE4. Have been studying it for a while now, but never got to create with it.
I need to create a simple 2D platformer project that demonstrates the following:
- 1 level with 3 screens ( 800x600px each )
- UI ( basic Health Bar)
- Importing some assets for level design
So my questions would be:
- Is UE4 right for this kind of prototyping ?
- Could anyone point me to some tutorials that cover the above issues?
Thank you for your time.
There is a Intro to Paper 2D video tutorial located here which will walk you through Paper 2D concepts and setup:
There is also a project on the Learn Tab of the Launcher created by Zak P. called Unreal Stick Figure 2D:
Here is the Twitch Stream where he talks about it:
You can take a look at the UMG Quick Start for how to Setup an in-game HUD:
Check out the following for importing:
And the following for Migrating assets from existing projects into your own (useful if you want to take assets from one project and pass them to your own):
Thank you for your generous answer Wes.
I’ve also checked AlanNoon’s live stream recording in the meantime. ( Creating a 2D Side-Scroller 2 parts )

Have a nice day Unreal folks!
Yeah, Alan’s Live Stream is an excellent source as well. Thanks for posting.
