I have always loved retro games and especially arcade games as my brothers and I would go to the shopping center every Saturday with our pocket money in hand and cue up to best anyone at Turtles In Time. Now that time has gone by and I am in my mid 30s I still have a longing for that old school feeling, and more importantly share it with my children.
There are many iterations of what I have achieved but for a non Linux user I had a hard time trying to piece together everything from hundreds of web-searches, forums and videos. I had noticed that no one had made a all in one post / tutorial that guided you through the steps required along with configuration tips.

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.
