Kickstarter Edition Hardware: Game status


(Tom Stewart) #1

As a followup from my earlier post, here’s what I’ve discovered as to the status of games and whether they work on the Kickstarter Edition of the hardware. I will start with the Codebender posted games, simply because I knew they would all fail, and because it’s so quick and easy, but I did in fact try them all, and got some different results.

Codebender Games:
FloatyBall https://codebender.cc/sketch:35593#FloatyBall.ino green led on left lights up; nothing else
Asteroids https://codebender.cc/sketch:35601#Asteroids.ino Not enough space error
Squario https://codebender.cc/sketch:35607#Squario.ino green led on left lights up; nothing else
Cube https://codebender.cc/sketch:40225#Cube.ino green led on left lights up; nothing else
ArduBreakout https://codebender.cc/sketch:164817#ArduBreakout.ino nothing
FB https://codebender.cc/sketch:165544#FB.ino Not even red light!!


"Semi-Official" Game List for the Arduboy
(Tom Stewart) #2

Here’s a first grouping of games mentioned here in the Games category.

Games Listed in Arduboy Forums (Games category)
Tiny 2048 – Tiny 2048 - smooth moving – didn’t try, as it’s apparently not a simple Arduino sketch where Upload is expected to work.
Atomic Puzzle Pack – https://github.com/atomic-salamander/puzzle_pack – compiles, uploads, doesn’t run
Battle for Zuthsrah – https://github.com/Mre64/BattleForZuthsrah – compiles, uploads, runs, power cycle to restart
Tiny Depth – Tiny depth - taste of game watch – didn’t try, as it’s apparently not a simple Arduino sketch where Upload is expected to work.
Silence/ArduBoyGTI – https://github.com/spaceneedle/GameTextInterpreter/tree/master/Players/ArduBoyGTI – didn’t try as it requires mods to the library
Mazogs – https://github.com/briansm-github/mazogs – compiles (gives low mem warning!), uploads, seems to work.
Little Rook Chess – Little Rook Chess on an Arduboy DevKit – wasn’t clear to me exactly what I needed to DL
FlappyHalloween – https://github.com/andrewlow/flappyhalloween – compiles (gives low mem warning!), uploads, seems to work.
ArduSketch – https://github.com/thekernal/ArduSketch – compiles, uploads, no screen, no lights, no nothing.
TeenyTank (MicroTanks) – https://github.com/Jezzamonn/TeenyTank/ – compiles, uploads, seems to work.
ArduboyLife – https://github.com/MLXXXp/ArduboyLife – compiles, uploads, seems to work.

Note: I’ve not been testing anything labeled ‘demo’, and also I think all the Team A.R.G. games work, but will check later.

Whoah man nice work! Exhaustive study of the arduboy ecosystem! @ekem get this guy a badge or some such thing!

Hardly exhaustive! There are many more that I haven’t tried, but it was a start. There is now an official thread with game status, which is what I wanted to see all along :smile:
