Hello everyone, in this tutorial i will show you how to setup admob ads in construct 2 .

1- the first things you need is an admob account to create your interstitial or banner ad unit and the admob plugin.

2- in construct double click in your layout then choose admob plugin :

3- after that go to your admob plugin setting → in android tab add your interstitial or your banner id . if you want to test ads set test mode to true. if you want to start earn from your ads set test mode to false.

4- go to event sheet and make a new event, choose system → on start of layout : action → choose admob plugin → preload inters. another action then preload banner ( you can add action → show banner then hide banner when the player start play or then show it again in another action:

5- the best way to add ads is between level. personally, i add my ads when the level complete or the player lose. like that : if player die or time=0 → show interstitial . or when game over screen is visible → show interstitial or when the player click a button → show interstitial.

6- after you finish, export to cordova . i made a previous tutorial to how do that step by step here :
