Get Score


Description

You can use this action to retrieve the value of the instance variable created for the "score". You supply the target variable to store the returned "score" value (which can be flagged as a temporary local variable), but note that if the variable has not been set previously (using Set Score) then the variable will be created for you and the action will return 0 (unlike regular instance variables which will give an error if you try to access them without having set them first).
