Creating level lists


  • Posts: 1
I have my game mechanics and a dozen levels squared away.  What is the best way to go about making a list of levels?

Something like this:

Do I just have to make a bunch of buttons? Also is there an easy way to make them get unlocked when you beat the previous one?

All suggestions welcomed, thanks.

You either need individual buttons, or one button with a numerical animation, as in 'set animation to 1' etc.

You could try a boolean like "isUnlocked" =false. Then when they complete a level, change it to true.

You can also build your level select scene by code using one empty button actor (perhaps with 3 different stars animation), a custom font and a loop system. The loop system will place the empty buttons and give them a value(which is used to call the correct level), while the draw event will give them a number or name.
