Join Kelley Hecker for an in-depth discussion in this video Timer level type, part of Building a Match 3 Game with Unity.
- [Voiceover] The last type of level is the timer level.…I'm going to make a new script called, Level Timer.…Like the other level types, this will derive…from the base level class.…The timer level needs to know how much time…the player has in seconds, and what the target score is.…I'm also adding a variable called Timer,…which is how long the game has been running for.…The level type, is LevelType.TIMER.…And I'm just going to add some debug text…to tell the player how much time they get…and the target score they need to reach.…
In Update, we'll update the timer.…If we've run out of time,…then we check to see if we reach the target score.…If we did, we won the game.…If we didn't, we lost the game.…Duplicate the level2 scene to create level3.…This will be our timer level.…Replace the Level Obstacles component…with the level timer script we just made.…Drag in the reference to the grid.…I'm going to give the player 90 seconds…to reach a target score of 50,000.…
The Star scores will be 50,000 for one star,…65,000 for two stars,…
