ask For Number

Ask the player for a number value.


The player is prompted to input a number. Your message is displayed and the player uses the number pad to select the number they want to return. Each digit of the response is selected with the A button. You can limit the number of digits the player can type in the response.

The player selects OK and presses the A button to finish typing the response. The response string is then returned to your program.


  • message: a string that is the prompt message to ask for a response.
  • answerLength: the number of digits you want let the player enter. The maximum you can set is 10 and the default is 6.


  • a number value that is the response typed by the player.


Ask the player for how many times the code should repeat.

let numOfRepeats = game.askForNumber("How many times should this repeat?")
for (let i = 0; i < numOfRepeats; i++) {
