I need some help developing a Goomba type AI

Hello

For a while now, Ive been trying to develop what at best I call a Goomba Type AI. Many know what a Goomba is but for the heck of it, A Goomba is a common enemy found in Super Mario Bros.

My goal is that for the game I'm developing, the base of the AI i want to create is simply an enemy that moves back and forth while on a platform that occasionally stops and moves again.

Eventually I want to expand this to do other things but at the core this is what I'm trying to achieve. I've searched through he forums and have not turned up much. I have looked at the platformer beginner tutorial on the tutorial's page and while that did help out, its not quite what I was hoping for.

I know AI is a tricky thing to come up with so any help would be awesome. Eventually once Ive cracked this, I want to right up a tutorial that other's can use or expand.

btw, its my first forum topic so please forgive any errors in my post setup.

If you want it to randomly move back and forth, have a look at the capx I posted here:

Also, for a goomba, make it turn on collision with a solid

The beginner tutorial on building a platform game is a great place to start. https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/253/how-to-make-a-platform-game

Wow...okay, first off Thank you very much for your help. I managed to cobble up something rudimentary simple. For a while now I was un-able to reply but fortunately whatever it was it's fixed now.


Thank you very much for your reply.
