- [Voiceover] We can now fill our gameboard,…clear and match pieces, and we even have…special piece types.…But this still isn't really a game.…There's no way to win or lose.…We'll fix that by creating a level class,…which will keep track of the state of the game.…We're going to implement three different level types:…a timer level, where the player must reach a certain score…in the given amount of time; a moves level,…where the player must reach a score…within the given number of moves;…and an obstacles-level type, where the player must…clear all the obstacles within a specific number of moves.…
To begin with, we're going to create a base level class…that all of our other level classes will derive from.…Create a new script called Level and open it.…This base class will contain all of the things…that are shared between all the level types.…First, we'll define an enum for the possible level types.…Since we know that each level will have a level type,…we'll add a variable for that to the base class.…This variable will be protected,…
