As I promised in the previous article, I've started making a (very short) video introduction to the common types of enemies in the game. There are many kinds of opponents in platforming video games. The most common kind are walkers who, simply said, walk around a pre-defined area of the level and interrupt players progress by simply being there. More advanced types have additional skills like shooting bullets, throwing knives, rushing an enemy with a spear or something similar.

Here's a short video introducing you to the walkers of Goblins and Coins.

What's your favorite or most hated enemy type in platformers?
