    Hi everyone !

    I'm working on a game where a cube have to dodge wall and collect bonus (see screen capture below). I've created a function called spawn_objetc(type,x,y) where type is equals to "bonus" or "wall" and x,y is the position vector. Walls can appear only on top or on bottom screen (so only two position on y) and bonus can be spawn anywhere in the screen.

    My question is how can I make a generator() function to spawn randomly walls and bonus without it's impossible for the player to collect bonus and dodge the next wall ? My game must be an infinite runner. I've already think about a timer to manage walls spawning but I don't want exactly the same distance between each walls, you understand ?
