Trouble With Player Movement

Hello. How do I make it so that the player zips to the other side of the screen on tap/press? I want the character to “slide”, in a sense, to the other side of the screen, but in a fast manner so the player can keep reacting. I’m not sure what events I should use.

maybe adding a permanent force?

Thank you! However, what do you mean by this? I’m trying to get the character to zip to the other side of the players screen. Where would I apply this force?

sorry I don’t understand exactly what you want to do but if you want it to move, you can apply to it a permanent force in angle 0 or 180 depending on the side you want to go, so it will move in this direction, then test the position not to exit screen. It would be a solution, unless you explain a bit more what you want to do

Let me explain a bit more. Imagine an object, on a screen, that is set on the far left or right. When the screen is pressed, the player then slides to the other side of the screen, perhaps to avoid oncoming obstacles.
