Approach to storing passwords:

    int level;
    enum Screen { MainMenu, Password, Win };
    Screen currentScreen = Screen.MainMenu;

    string[][] passwordBank = {
        new string[] { "map", "rock", "tip", "maze", "hey" }, // easy
        new string[] { "hello", "pasta", "earth", "crust", "koala" }, // medium
        new string[] { "cricket", "yodel", "broccoli", "knight", "house" }, // hard
        new string[] { "subterfuge", "scavenger", "tubular", "hazardous", "uranium" } // godly
    string currentPassword;

    void GetPassword() {
        int randomIndex = UnityEngine.Random.Range(0, passwordBank[level-1].Length);
        currentPassword = passwordBank[level-1][randomIndex];

I found that using string instead of string[,] to declare a 2d array is better when you also need access to a specific row of the array. Its known as a jagged array. I wanted this so that I didn’t have to adjust anything else when I add more passwords into the password bank.
