Making an object pop up and fall back down (noob here)

I am making a flying type side scroll game. Think magic carpet flight with objects coming from the right, scrolling to the left.

I would like objects to occasionally pop up (think dog hoping straight up from bottom/off screen and falling back below bottom edge.

How to I trigger and complete this action? I really don’t think the platformer engine is the right method, but what do I know?

I have tried using forces, but this doesn’t seem right either. I know the algorithm if I just straight out coded it, but I am looking for the gdevelop method.

Thank you!

I do not know what your problem with the forces, but look at the tweens. may be that is what you are looking for.

Look at the built in 8-bit space shooter example, has a lot of different enemy behaviors in it.
