Moving in one direction in a side sliding game

Okay, so I have been looking around at"Cool", the section
“161. 2D platform game #6 – Managing the player
September 15, 2014” and I Was wondering how to keep A side scroller and player moving automatically AT&T the same speed, instead of the swipe left or right method. Code would be appreciated, but I would really appreciate links. I want to learn this stuff without being spoon fed code all the time. Thanks! :slight_smile:

On that page, I also saw talk about special effects, and “the juice library” where could I go to read on those special effects?

You aren’t anywhere near ready for any of that stuff yet. I suggest learning some basic Lua and Codea first.
