Trying to do a side scroll beat em up

Andy 1 month ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 1 month ago 1

So I’m trying to make a side scrolling beat em up similar to double dragon, final fight, streets of rage etc. I can’t get the character to move like them in those games.  in those games, the characters would always be facing left or right but never up or down.  Even when pressing up or down, they would still be facing left or right. 

Is it possible to do this in game creator? 

I want the character to be able to move in all directions (both axis) but only face in the games x axis 

Unity version:
Game Creator version:

You could use the Action "Change Direction" so that the player (or any other character) looks at a n object that's very far on the left or another one that's very far on the right. That way, the character can still move up/down while looking at one of these points.

Pressing a button you could change the direction the player looks at.
