    If we have a rectangle platform is it possible to make they left side of it destroy the character but the top not kill the character so it can use it to say jump?

    If so, what is the slickest way to do this, sadly been stuck on this for a day :( I feel like im missing something so easy.

    You need to use an (invisible) enemy and attach it to the platform if the platform is supposed to move. Make sure the collision shapes are lined up correctly.

    makes sense , but wont there be a tiny lip where it can graze and not die? and if you bring the invisible enemy to the top of the platform it will kill it on top. I provided a picture below what I mean. Can U explain best way to go about this?
    thanks again!

    Another option would be to attach an invisible object to the character. That way you don't have to worry about adjusting for every possible platform height or shape.

    Thats a really good idea but my character rotates to different sides throughout the game, much like geometry dash
