Pew pew pew! You can make your own Space Invaders-esque shooting game with an Adafruit twist: Sparky Invaders!
Our own Blue Smoke Monster wants to destroy as many sensitive IC (integrated circuit) chips with his ESD (electrostatic discharge) bolts as possible. Learn how to use MakeCode Arcade to create the gameplay code, graphics, and sounds for this fun, simple game.
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.
