So lets say I want a sprite to go to (100, 1000) and then when it reaches that point, it detects if there is anything there. If there is, then
randomvariable = randomvariable + 1
happens. How exactly would I do this? I like to look at code, and learn what the person did, so it would be nice if someone could write the code, since I am new. Sorry if my english is bad.

Do you means something like this?



Note: This code is completely untested, and it won't even work properly, see the last couple of lines for why.
Bascially this is what it theoretically should do though:
1. Create 9 enemy sprites
2. Create player (Hero)
3. in loop, if user clicks, move hero to that position via function
4. function will return 1 if the sprite has reached target location
5. if it has, then scan through all 9 enemies for collision

the only part that definitely doesn't work, is the function checking if you've reached the target location. I also don't know if the function will even work, it's meant to calculate the length of the vector, normalise it and multiply it by the speed, but I don't know if it'll work properly. I don't have time to check it at the moment, but if nobody's got it sorted out my this afternoon, I'll fix it for you
