    Hi all,

    I'm creating a game similar to Amazing Brick. So I have a character that you can make hop up and to the right by tapping on the right side of the screen, and up and to the left by tapping on the left side of the screen.

    I'm trying to create an rocket power-up/action in Buildbox that makes my character turn into a rocket and boost up. How do I create this effect in Buildbox? I can't seem to find an option in the action editor that would force my character up.

    All help is appreciated, thanks!

    Also a weird problem/bug - I have the action's sprite set to replace the character's sprite, but after the action duration time runs out, my original sprite doesn't load or something and my character is sprite-less! (invisible)

    Try setting the action duration to 999999.

    But I don't want the action to run forever, I just want it to be a single boost up, do you know what I mean?
