make full use of background colors as that will help speed/memory retention.

Lots of design philosophies out there.  Sometimes it’s good to hide things under multiple screens.  Sometimes having things “pop up” or “slide out” is good.  Othertimes it’s good to have everything available in a single screen.

Maybe prioritize?  What functions will be used most often?  What information will be needed most often?

Ask questions like, “What’s the least they need to do this?”  and make that first (if multiple screen) or highlighted (if single screen) – like surrounded by a box, or different background color.

In fact, if this is console/native font… make full use of background colors as that will help speed/memory retention.

That’s just a few thoughts.    I know there’s some cognitive things, like “the human brain can process 7 distinct things  plus or minus 3 ,at a time… so many times menus or displays have a maximum of 7 items in them.

Also, I’d look at competition.  You can learn a lot from what they do right, what they do wrong, etc.
