just go to the object you want to control, select Add Event

then left, up, right, or down. under the event, go to the MOVE tab (on the right) and select jump to a givin position.
for left, type in X:-4 Y:0; for right, X:4 Y:0; down, X:0 Y:4; up, X:0 Y:-4.
on all of the boxes
EDIT:All right, it was a revive, but oh well. :p
