          This should get you started:


          <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
          <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
            creationComplete="timer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, timerFunc);" 
                private var timer:Timer = new Timer(1000, 0);
                [Bindable] private var numBalls:uint = 1;
                private function timerFunc(event:TimerEvent):void{
            <mx:Label id="lbl" text="{numBalls} ball(s) falling now" fontSize="100" textAlign="center"/>
            <mx:Button label="Start Game" click="timer.start();"/>
            <mx:Button label="Stop Game" click="timer.stop();numBalls=1;"/>
