Join Kelley Hecker for an in-depth discussion in this video Show the game over screen, part of Building a Match 3 Game with Unity.
- [Voiceover] Now that we've created our functions…to show the Game Over screen when we win or lose the game,…we need to call these functions from the HUD.…Open up the HUD script.…The HUD already knows when we win or lose the game…because the level is calling the OnGameWin…and OnGameLose functions.…This is where we'll show the Game Over screen.…Add a variable to store a reference to the Game Over screen.…In the inspector, assign the reference…to the Game Over screen.…
Click Apply to apply to the pre-fab.…In OnGameWin, we'll call gameOver.ShowWin…and we'll pass in the score and starIdx,…which is the number of stars the player got.…In OnGameLose, we'll call gameOver.showLose.…Unity will give you a warning when you've created a variable…that's not being used.…Since isGameOver ended up never being used,…let's go ahead and remove it.…
Hit play and finish a game.…The Game Over screen popped up, and it shows…how many stars we got and our score.…Right now, the Game Over screen appears…as soon as we run out of moves.…But at this time, the board might still be refilling…
