I would like to know how this effects are created.

Are this all quadchains with different textures applied to it or how did they do it?

Its a screenshot from a towerdefense game in the Starcraft2 Engine.

Looks like a set of particle systems to me.

 

The trial that goes upwards roughly in the centre of the screen definitely is a particle system.

 

Looks like one of the particle textures may be an animated line as well, the one coming down at about 170 degrees and ending in the orange explosion.

I took the screenshot from the video here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDi9hjTfRPA#t=1047

 

Do you think that the blue shot which is comming from the right side is also a particle system?

 

I read something about creating laser beams here http://codepoke.net/2011/12/27/opengl-libgdx-laser-fx/ and I was wondering if I could use the some technique for other effects like in the youtube video.

Probably, it just looks like the particles are closer together in that one.

 

The lightning bolts on the left side look like a quad (or quads) with an animated texture.
