    To be able to give you meaningful help we need to know more specifics than "I need help". What do you need help with? What specifically are you trying to do? What have you attempted so far? Why didn't it work? What resources have you already looked at?

    Have you started by doing the official tutes?

    Make Roll-A-Ball. Then do the 2D tuts. Then the scripting ones. Then come back and ask if you need specific help.

    The problem is that when (if) someone explains to you in detail how to do exactly that, you'll come up with the next set of questions, so on and so forth, until we've written the game for you.
    Why don't you just listen to what people are saying, and go and watch the tutorials from the learn section. They are very good and can teach you a lot. When you're done with the tutorials, make the sample projects from that learn page. They cover all the basic stuff you want to know and more. If you follow closely, you'll be able to make your own game without asking any questions.

    Wait, we already did that. Because so many people need help writing a game we bundled all of the questions up into some convenient videos. Called the learn section.
