I wanted to have my platform character move a limited amount each time the user presses an arrow key. The idea would be to press the arrow keys multiple times to keep the character moving. Holding an arrow key should not have continuous movement.
The why I tried to do it was to disable platform movement after a small wait period, each time the arrow key is pressed. This is a horrible solution, since it disables jumping along with it; which I did not want to ever be disabled.
Is there a way to have this sort of "burst" movement; without impacting the ability to jump?
