What types of game should I start making to get started with Unity 3D? Any ideas?

Remember: it should be small, and not art-intensive.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

-1, "what game should I make" isn't really a good question. Also for beginning games there's already a pretty thorough list here.… – Tetrad Dec 13 '10 at 6:25
In any game engine a know gametype would be a good place to start. I have a few suggestions. 1) Pac-Man clone. 2) Space Invaders/Galaxy 3) Frogger 4) any other "basic" game that seems too simple always shows up to have enough for beginners. Try some of them first. Then you will learn a lot. If you dont know the games, use Youtube to learn about them. – BerggreenDK Sep 6 '11 at 0:13

Take one of the existing Unity example projects and modify it. This gives you a good solid base to work from.

I've always felt like a bit of an alien because this approach never works for me. Am I the only one? I always have to learn new tools by building from scratch; I never get anywhere by looking at example projects. – jhocking Jun 27 '14 at 12:05
