Scoreboard does not show

Newbie CS teacher help AGAIN!

This student cannot get the scoreboard to appear. We used the watcher to verify the score increases each time “astro” touches the “star” but the text scoreboard string does not appear. (Still working on the condition when “astro” touches “alien.”) We figure the “background” sprite is covering it but we cannot figure out how to get the text on top of it! Tried moving the text code around to a bunch of different places and adding “draw sprites” above it, but…

Thanks in advance!


I remixed it and moved the drawSprites to be the very first element in the draw loop and the score shows up.

Good luck!


Wha! I’m sure we tried that…!
