Need ideas for arduboy games?😃

@Micahdebick I started in 2013 with arduino and NO knowledge of coding what so ever … Shadow Runner - First conversion of a TEAM a.r.g. game is the first game I did on my own :slight_smile: I’m also co-organizer of http://www.arduino-jam.org

So … Don’t think you can’t do it. Just try stuff, split projects into really small parts, that’s how I did it.

Thanks man. Its not that I don’t think I can. I know I could learn if I just put the time into it. Time is just something I’m lacking being a student, co-business manager, and aspiring musician haha
Maybe I’ll try to put some of my limited free time to learning arduino code. And perhaps, in 3 years, I too can have something worth sharing!
Thanks for the encouragement though!

Also, do you have a suggestion of where to start for learning coding? Youtube, wikis, forums, software, books even?
Thank you!

Indeed I started just doing Arduino and these are the steps I did:

  • I bought an Arduino Uno starter kit and the Arduino cookbook.
  • I thought of a simple project first (4 led’s and 4 buttons for a “Simon says” game)
  • I split up the entire project into very small parts
  • and I just started tackling every part one by one
  • and finally I have put all little pieces together into one piece … a game :slight_smile:

Why not make arduisland a survival island game!!!

A Tetris clone would be fantastic.

I know the Tetris Microcard exists and is fully licensed by the Tetris Company.

You called The Falling Blocks Game or something similar.

I’m afraid that’s just not allowed! :spy:

Meaning bateske’s relationship with Tetris doesn’t allow it - and they are super paranoid about clones… it can easily be done (and there is already source out there for it) but it would have to be discussed somewhere else I have a feeling.

If you read about the court case a while back a judge actually said Tetris clones are more than legal if you don’t steal ALL the unique things about Tetris… but that doesn’t necessarly stop Tetris from sending you scary memos from their lawyers.

I understand that there’s legal ramifications if somebody did go ahead and create a Tetris clone.

I also know in the Gamebuino library there is code for a couple of games called BlockBueno and Tetrino.

But I’ve no idea how to compile it to work on the Arduboy.

There is a Gamebuino wrapper here on the forums somewhere you could probaby use to get most of the way there.

Any idea what’s it’s called?

Just search for gamebuino.

This is almost too simply to be called a game. This is like a list of strings and a few lines of code. :slight_smile:

Pretty sure we already have a pac man.

Ok, Pixel Miner is cute:

DO people actually spent a lot of time playing this though?

Another game I’d love to see is Crazy Climber.

Something similar to Snow Brothers (but not puzzle bobble) would be lovely.

This Game Is Awesome on Android and Ios but a arduboy version would be awesome you could talk to the devs and see if theyd be willing to give up the source code then u could maybe translate it to arduino code and run it on an arduboy?

Oh yes totally! Thought about it myself since i’ve liked it very much on the phone!

Some Russian guy has done 1-bit rogue for Arduino I’ve been playing it on a nano it works well on the oled.
