Play Pac-Man on an Arduino Due


Play Pac-Man on an Arduino Due with ILI9341 and VGA support via blog.atmel

This recent project from Dr. NCX Mirracle is one of those that are much better seen than read about. Simply stated, the Maker has developed an awesome Pac-Man clone for the Arduino Due that looks just like something out of the arcade.

For those unfamiliar with this Arduino, the Due is based on a SAM3X8E Cortex-M3 clocked at 84MHz — which certainly puts it in a different league than its sibling, the Uno. These enhanced capabilities enable video output to both an ILI9341 TFT screen and an external 8-bit VGA (240×320) at the same time. What’s more, the Pac-Man game is playable with a keypad and features five sample levels.

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.
