There are tons of games where objects need to get from Point A to Point B, all the while avoiding dead ends, cliffs, and who knows what all.
That's where pathfinding comes in.
The Jumper library is available free on Github and this mini-tutorial includes videos with 4 sample demos that will get you up and running fast!
You can pound it out yourself, or get a headstart for less than the price of a movie and snacks!
Note! This is NOT a course for beginners. There is less "hand-holding" in this mini-tutorial than in most of my courses. ;)
(This course is included in the Beginning Game Development course.)
