This is a new multi-part Phaser 3 tutorial for intermediate level developers: "In this tutorial we're going to create a retro styled highscore table. Classic arcade games would often have you trying your best to get a highscore, only to immortalize it on the highscore table with a simple 3 character name.

We're going to recreate this in a Phaser 3 Scene you can easily drop into any game. However, while it's retro inspired, we don't want to be entirely held in the past. So, as well as being able to select the characters to enter onto the highscore table using the cursor keys, you can also use the mouse, or touch input, or simply type them in too. Modern retro, if you like."
