"Semi-Official" Game List for the Arduboy


(Ross) #19

Yeah, this post was a stop gap solution until we figure out how to best automate and supply the list. Eventually a stub page for games will be found on the www.arduboy.com domain, as well as the community section.

Discourse has a great API that can be used to pull a nice game list from the community’s game section.

As @ekem says this is only for now until we figure out a better way of doing this. We will likley still keep this thread open for users to edit on their own, but we will be running a currated “Arduboy Arcade” from the main page for games that meet some basic guidelines.

These guidelines haven’t been solidified but here is a quick example of what we are thinking:

  • Title Screen
  • Gameplay that has some kind of point system, end scenario, or otherwise functional game mechanics
  • Game Over Screen (where applicable)
  • Sound of some kind (this is tenative, a silent game that is otherwise awesome may be accepted but we want to encourage sound use)
  • Source Code is available

For games in the arcade we will also try to police use of the EEPROM memory as much as makes sense. Meaning, we will try to make sure save game data from one game doesn’t wipe out another.

Which should continue to be discussed further here.

Hi there,
I recently developped a Snake for Arduboy.
Its a simple version that could easily be extended.
It has been tested with Arduboy 1.0.
Here is the repo :
SnakeArduboy


(Scott) #27

A popular game indeed! We now have this new one plus:

and:

(Hugus) #28

Yes it is popular :slight_smile:
I did not manage to install the Snakeling version (I might not have tried very hard ;)) so I implemented another one.
SnakeArduBoy has the advantage to adopt a model-view-controller design that makes it easy to tweak, its a developper oriented version !


(Scott) #29

Did you see my recent post in the Snakeling topic?


(Hugus) #30

Nope I missed it ! Thanks for the info.


(Streetalchemist) #31

Hey all! This is my first post but wanted to say that I just finished Version 1.0 at least of my game Space Knife. I wasn’t sure if it was proper to add it to the list above or if people should review it first. It’s simple right now and has a long way to go, but so far I’ve been absolutely loving the Arduboy system and developing for it!


(Ross) #32

Yep! Feel free to add you game to the list. It’s a community wiki. I’ll also double check that you will have the privileges to actually do the edit. Thanks for adding! (Don’t mind the mess).


(Streetalchemist) #33

Thanks so much! Got it added :slight_smile:


(Lorenzo Coltellacci) #34

New games? Please let us know!


(Bert G Jones) #35

When will ardumon be released? Honestly that was my selling point on the device.


(Ash) #36

From what I gather it only exists as an unreleased tech demo, they stopped development after arduventure came out.

How to get my game on this list?

Here is the reference: http://community.arduboy.com/t/arduindy-inspired-by-zx-spectrum-game-sabre-wulf-updated-to-1-00/2640/4

Kevin: It would be great to have an Official list of games, for Arduboy-owners and also for promotional usage... Here we could have some review rankings, eg. the users can vote 1-5 stars on the games and give som comments.

Cheers Jacoste
