Entity Editor for defining game entities using images, models, and other customizable properties. 2D Model Editor makes it easy to create models for use in rendering and physics body definition.
Image, Entity, and Model Palettes provide a graphical view of a project's available resources.
Simply drag-and-drop from the palette to the editor!
