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.
