Classic point and click navigation

Hello,
I was wondering if it was possible to implement “a point and click navigate system” like in the classic point & click style games of the 1990s. For example, the student clicks somewhere on background image and an animated object ( e.g character) moves to that on screen coordinate / location.
Thanks.

Hi Eugene,

Please take a look at the attached project to see if this is what you need:

To achieve that, I use the Motion Path and Multiple Timelines features:

Thank you very much Yen for the quick reply. I had thought about motions paths and hotspots.

I have an idea about creating a ‘point and click adventure game’ and take advantage of the already integrated interactivities – hotspots, quizzes etc. It would be great if the user/ player was able to move a 2d character/ animation freely around the stage / scene. I suppose something like on mouse click move object (e.g 2d character) to position ( x – y coordinates) . This would suppose that there would be a grid with a clickable areas.

Best regards,
Eugene

Hi Eugene,

Thank you for getting back to me!
I am afraid that it’s impossible for a character to move freely around the stage/ scene as you described.
