For example, if I click on the text object, it should be redirected to the start of the game, so 'thisEventRunning'=true, and 'thisGameOver'=false.
If I understand what you are asking, you need a method that sets all the variables and objects to their initial condition and then runs the game again. This probably means that you need the initial pose and position for any object that moves. Basically something like:

    // initialize all global variables, and movable objects

    call run

    // go until no lives remain
    ask do you want to play again?
    if yes then
        // Do nothing
    // exit movie
