Let’s Jump – A straightforward Unity C# script to make a Jump Button

You have a capsule as your player placeholder, and you already added a rigid body to it. Then you need to make a jump button. What would you do?

Here using this simple script you can make a jump button for your character easily.

Attach this script to the capsule with rigid body in it, then make a button on UI Canvas, then drag and drop the capsule to the onclick slot, find startLetsJump() and that’s all.

Here is the script:

using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;

public class LetsJump : MonoBehaviour
	public float jumpSpeed = 3f;
	public float jumpDelay = 2f;
	private bool canjump;
	private bool isjumping;
    private Rigidbody rb;
	private float countDown;
    // Start is called before the first frame update
    void Start()
        canjump = true;
		rb = GetComponent<Rigidbody>();
		countDown = jumpDelay;

    // Update is called once per frame
    void Update()
		if(isjumping &amp;&amp; countDown > 0)
			countDown -= Time.deltaTime;
			canjump = true;
			isjumping = false;
			countDown = jumpDelay;
	public void StartLetsJump(){
			canjump = false;
			isjumping = true;
			rb.AddForce(0, jumpSpeed, 0, ForceMode.Impulse);

This script along a demonstration scene is included in a Unity package that you can download here: https://creativeshop.ciihuy.com/product/lets-jump-a-simple-way-to-jump-in-unity/
