I'm currently working on an little Android game, it's a reaction casual game. Because the user needs to tap some balls flying around at the right moment, I want to add some new effects to them.

So I looked at some other games and found this cool looking cartoon like effect.

Picture As you can see the ball there has an cool tail.

So my question is, does anyone know how to recreate such a trail with the Unity particle effects or some other tools?

You might be able to do this with the TrailRenderer component. When you want your game object to have more than one trail, you might have to add some sub-objects to it with their own trail renderers.
