Add Game Score

A score counter in a game is basically a text area defined to keep count of the player’s points and automatically display it in the UI. Unlike a regular text label, in the UI Editor, a score label is displayed as green crosshairs at the top of the screen:

To add a score counter to the game:

  1. On the Mind Map, double-click the UI node where you want to add a score.
    The UI Editor is displayed.
  2. In the Asset panel, expand the Labels section and drag the font label you want to use for the score to the UI Editor.
  3. Position the text area at the top of the screen or wherever you want the score to appear.
  4. In the Options panel on the right, do the following:
    1. In the Name field, enter a descriptive name, for example, Score.
    2. In the Function field, select Score.
    3. Make the rest of the selections to choose the score type, amount, and other attributes as described in Score Label.
  5. Preview the game to test the score.
