While coding Hunt the Wumpus, I ran into a problem with one of my functions. I wanted to use an enum to represent different hazards (bats, pits, Wumpus) and have a common function to check a given cave for hazards and return the enum of the first one found. This helps with showing hazards in neighboring caves as well as checking a cave before the player moves into it.
I started by declaring a function which returns an enum:
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

I am both thrilled and disappointed. I had the same idea myself a while back as an exercise in using a similar, but not nearly as RGB, LCD & button shield available elsewhere. The idea got tossed on the todo pile along with many other idea.
I am excited to see it implemented. It seems like many of the text based games from the 80’s might be a fun port to the Arduino and LCD shield. (see “Basic Computer Games” and “More Basic Computer Games”.)
