From the Forums: 64×32 LED Matrix Arduino Mario Jumper

Arduino_Mario

A very nice project posted by FrozT in the Adafruit Forums.

As a project to teach my son coding for the Arduino we put together a little Mario jumping game. It may not be perfect but my interest in taking it any further is rapidly coming to a middle.

Ingredients:
64 x 32 LED Matrix
Arduino Mega (you might actually be able to do this on an Uno but I haven’t tried.)
IR Sensor or Button (I’m using IR so people actually have to jump.)
the codez (see below)

Instructions:
Put IR sensor on Analog pin A4 and attach it to a stick above your head. Then jump to make Mario jump. Your score will increase for every obstacle that you successfully pass or brick that you break. Once dead, just jump to reset.

The post then lists some very well written Arduino code for the game. Well done!

Check it out in the Adafruit forum post.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
