=>click->new. select NEW-> new empty project.

Step1:

Change the active layer to main by clicking on the Main layer in the layer bar, and then, insert a new text object. Change the name of the object to something you want. Because, Although it can be changed later on, it is a good practice to change it first before adding the game object so that you don't have two objects with similar names.

Step2:

Run Layout:

Finally, your project are run.

This following article, we have seen in concept of adding timer with constructor, you can event do loud more changes in this further articles will be discussed about create android game build constructor 2, Thank you reading article.
