MicroView games (Pong, BreakOut, FlappyBird/Copter)

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.

If the bird makes contact with the ground, pipes or goes above the top of the screen the game is over.
