NEW GUIDE: MakeCode Arcade Pixel Art @adafruit @johnedgarpark @msmakecode #adafruit
NEW GUIDE ALERT! In this guide, MakeCode Arcade Pixel Art, learn how to make our own pixel art character sprites! Many classic and modern video games use two-dimensional pixel art, a.k.a. sprites, to represent characters. The limitations on size and color palette can unlock worlds of creativity!
We’ll cover the fundamentals of pixel art character sprites, as well as learn to make our own using MakeCode Arcade, and even upload our characters and move them around on the PyBadge!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
