Hello everyone  Smiley

This is not about a new beta version this time (wait a few more days for this Wink), I just wanted to have your point of view about one question I ask myself about the game.

So far, every new world is "unlocked" with an access code that is revealed at its beginning. You can restart a game in the last world you discovered but if you go back to the main menu, you have to remember this code if you want to start a new game from the corresponding world.

Given that I intend to release a future Android version, I wondered if, instead of typing codes (not the most intuitive way to select a starting world on a smartphone), I should create a new menu so that the player simply selects a starting world among the ones already discovered. That implies saving the list of unlocked worlds but this would not be a big deal and I could keep it for PC/mac/Linux version.

What's your opinion about it ? Thanks  Wink
