The main menu should be clear and straightforward. Effort should be made to limit the menu items to as few options as possible.
Always clearly highlight the currently active menu item and ensure that text is legible when displayed over an image or video background.
Avoid switching navigation types between the Main Menu and sub menu. For example, if the Main Menu is a list, the sub menu should also be a list. Switching navigation types between menus will force the player to think more to achieve their task. Don’t make your players have to think.
