We will implement the cooldown system that will deactivate the BarrierObject button as shown in the following screenshot:

Then, we will make the barrier's apparition smoother by tweening its scale.

public IEnumerator Cooldown(int cooldown)
  //Deactivate the Barrier button and update Color to Disable
  button.isEnabled = false;
  button.UpdateColor(false, true...
