Arduino Game Console

Tools used

Arduino dev board, C++

A game console based on the Arduino platform


The project was a very useful tool for me to learn the low level workings of a simple game console.


The console contains 3 games the player can switch between, as showed below.


It was the first project I've done with this kind of display, and I grew to like the code simplicity of a simple matrix display, which I might upgrade to a double or even full colored one later on, unless I switch to an actual TFT display for the second version of this project.




The first game implemented on the console, a classic racer type reaction game.




The final version of the console contains 3 minigames together with the above racer game, the other 2 games being a space invaders clone and pong.
