Hi, I'm trying to use an enemy and of course I want several enemies in the screen.
I could create several objects but that wouldn't work in the long run.

The problem I'm having is every instance is responding to the same event, e.g. I kill one and they all die.
I tried using family and the same happens. I think families are the solution and I'm doing it wrong tho.

Any useful link?

Your problem is with picking, understanding that in C2 is crucial if you want to make anything useful. Luckily when you get it, its really easy.

This should get you started:

Pretty much its all about setting up the correct conditions for your objects.
