Ashley, the gamejam sounds great, but right now I can't even complete the "Beginner's Guide"... i've got my background and main layers, but can't create the HUD. I'm a high school teacher, my students have Chromebooks, and i hoped to help them through the Beginner's Guide. How about upping the limit to 3 layers? Nothing dramatic, but enough to add a way to display the score? Thanks for the consideration!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but in that tutorial isn't one of the layers just for the TiledBackground object?
You could move the TiledBackground to the other layer where the play takes place and move it to the bottom of the layer, freeing up a layer to use for the HUD
That would at least allow you to finish the tutorial and is a good lesson in adapting to the limitations of the tools you're using.
