MicroView games (Pong, BreakOut, FlappyBird/Copter)

Post by manuelsagra » Fri Apr 17, 2015 3:27 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this community, and I decided to register and making my first post showing some little projects 8-)

I've got a Microview since the begining (I was a backer in KickStarter)... but I really have two of them, because I was "affected" with the bootloader issue (lucky me!). I didn't pay much attention to the device until recently, but when I started to tinker with it I couldn't stop. I've never used the Arduino IDE before, but I was surprised how easy was to program for these little devices.

I've programmed three modest games: a Pong clone, a BreakOut clone, and some kind of Flappy Bird clone (more like a Copter clone really).

I've uploaded the code and details to a GitHub repo, if someone it's interested...

Happy tinkering!

These are great! Love the Atari 2600 paddles, why didn't I think of that??

Thanks :D

The paddles are cool, but the potentiometers are a little bit unreliable nowadays, the response is a bit jerky (and I had to "filter" the reads via software to prevent this). I've seen they sell replacements because of this problem.
