Genetic algorithms for platformer games

Hello, I’m making an IA for a platform game (mario like) and I want to use an GA. I’m struggling with the inputs to give to my IA (which describe the state of the game) and with the genes format. Have anyone tried GA on this kind of game ? Or knows good ressources about it ?

SethBling has a video on using GA on Super Mario World ( He uses the simplified screen content as input and the gene format is the description of a neural network.
