spawn platforms

Hi, I was wondering how to do something (I know I know I’m still on the trial but I’ve been trying to get the artwork done)…I can’t really try this out for myself first because I have no idea where to begin so all I’m asking is for some direction or if you know of a tutorial etc…
I’m making an endless runner and want to spawn platforms into the scene at random, I want to have a set of platforms that are each different as in enemy or obstacles on them. I’ve been trying to think of how this might be done and all I know is from what I’ve read I need them to self destroy after they have been in the scene…other than that I’m completely lost. Any help would be great.
Thanks.

    I've done a couple runner game tutorials you might find helpful. They are posted below:

    Hi jamie_c, I actually have your course on udemy but got stuck at one point, i asked a question on the comments but didn't get a reply, could you check it out? it's the question about the "platform changing size". I know you went over having platform into scene but i want to have different platforms with different obstacles not just the main one that comes into the scene at different heights...the part i'm completely lost at is the random part concerning different types of platforms...i'm really hopeless at all this..i'll keep trying though.

    @Elijarah, I'll check out the question in class and replay there. We shouldn't do that through the forum here.
