Noob alert here!
I'm just getting started with a mobile concept I have, and I'm stumped at the first hurdle
I would like to tap on the left of the block to move the block up smoothly, like a jump and tap on the right of it to make it fall to ground quickly.
I'd applied 8-direction behaviour to the block, and added a touch object and added to empty sprites as the touch target objects.
In the event sheet I am looking for a touch on the objects and then setting either the Sprite.Y position to it's normal position, or 200 pixels above and I duplicated the same for mouse for testing in browser.
However, nothing happens! If I add another action like to set a negative gravity it works, so I can see the touch/mouse events are firing, they're just not moving my block!
Hopefully it is just something dumb on my part, my project is attached.
