    Hi I’m making a game kinda like infinite pool on the App Store, I wanna know how I can be able to pull back and hit the ball but If it doesn’t go into the desired goal to go to the next level then the game is over and you have to restart, basically what I mean is I can only have 1 turn to shoot the ball into the hole.

    How can I create a simple menu system? I want to have 2 levels. Run Level 1, when I win or lose, it brings me back to the menu selector where I can select Level 2 and run that Level. Can that only be done with having World 1 be Level 1 and World 2 be Level 2? Or, can I create a single World, create 2 Scenes within that Level, and then run each Scene as a Level?

    It appears each Level has to be a World BUT I was hoping there is a way to make each Scene it's own Level. If the latter is not the case, then Buildbox is basically forcing us to purchase the max deal just to be able to create games anyone would likely create.

    Hi @andre_sprs and all other who might have the answer for this...... First i will sat I like the list, but i need some more, and can't fine a video about these issues I have ..
    1: How to destroy a Object by tapping it ( example I have a "wepon" Pickaxe and when i hit the ground or a rock with my pickaxe i need to destroy that object) next to me or below me..to get past.
    2: How to upgrade a weapon ( example I have a "Weapon" that need to be able to destroy new objekt when i "BUY" the upgraded weapon... and i need to be able to using GOLD as I collect in the game..to upgrade the weapons...)

    Ok so if I want my character, enemy, objects and platforms to change in every scene will I need multiple worlds? Or is there a way to achieve that in an "endless" mode? Thanks for your patience, I'm new to this.

    Hi everyone,

    On the image I have screenshotted, my game level is finishing mid-level when (as red arrow shows) I have lots more of the level to go through. I did move the finish line and the end line well away from there so there should be no reason why this is happening unless there is another invisible element/asset/thing I am not aware of that I need to change/move. What have I not considered?
