Palm Pilot SFCave Inspired Arduino Game

One of Adafruit’s favorite customers, Stephanie, has another great project to share.  She was a fan of the SFCave game on her old Palm Pilot, and so she recreated it on an Arduino.  She used our brand new monochrome 1.3 128×64 OLED graphic display.

This is a game I used to enjoy back in the Palm Pilot days. It’s a really simple game, uses only a single pushbutton to control the action. You’re ‘flying’ through a cave and you can only control your altitude – press the button to go up, release the button to go down. The object is not to crash into the ceiling or floor.

You need an Arduino (I use a Leonardo in the demo), an Adafruit 128×64 OLED (the 1.3″ is my new favorite display!) and a single pushbutton.

Check out the full writeup on Stephanie’s blog, or learn more/ask questions about the project on the forums.

NEW PRODUCT – Monochrome 1.3 128×64 OLED graphic display. These displays are small, only about 1.3″ diagonal, but very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display. This display is made of 128×64 individual white OLED pixels, each one is turned on or off by the controller chip. Because the display makes its own light, no backlight is required. This reduces the power required to run the OLED and is why the display has such high contrast; we really like this miniature display for its crispness!

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.
