Join Kelley Hecker for an in-depth discussion in this video Script the game over screen, part of Building a Match 3 Game with Unity.
- [Voiceover] Now I'm going to create a script…to control the game over screen.…Create a new script,…and call it Game over.…Drag it on to the game over object.…We're going to add some variables…to store references to all URL elements…we need to change.…This will be the Screen Object,…the Score Object,…the Lose and the Score Text,…and all the Star Images.…Connect all these objects…in the inspector.…
When you're done,…each will look like this.…Back in the game over script,…we don't want the screen to be visible…when we're playing the game,…so at start,…we'll deactivate the screen object.…We'll also hide all the star images,…we'll re-enable them later.…Create a function called ShowLose ,…which will be called when we lose the game.…When we lose the game…we wan't to display the game over screen.…So we set the screen object to active.…
Then we deactivate the score object.…Since that should only be visible…when we win the game.…Then we'll play show animation…we made in the previous video.…Now create a function…to show on the screen when we win the game.…
