Moving Character Left/Right with Arrows

Hello, I am having an issue with a small little game I am trying to make for my class. I have searched all over youtube and the forums and was not able to find any solutions.

Let me explain by what I want to do… I have a student who wants two buttons (Left arrow, right arrow), they then want an imagine (spaceship) and they want this image to go left when u push left and go right when you push right.

I have tried so many ways of code inside thunkable and can not get it to work. Can anyone help me please?

Use two buttons and a canvas. Either

  • On button down set speed of your character sprite to 1 and orientation to 0 (or 180)
    On button up set speed of your character sprite to 0
  • On button click set character sprite x position to x position + 1 (or - 1)

Hello, thank you for the reply. I am still having trouble. I believe you can not do this in IOS, because I can not add a canvas.

Please advise!

Hi,

To add canvas, copy the code from the attached file and paste it into the text box shown below.
