NEW GUIDE: Next Level MakeCode Arcade Games @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit @msmakecode
NEW GUIDE ALERT! John Park’s Next Level MakeCode Arcade Games is the guide for you!! Background music! Importing graphics assets from Aseprite/Photoshop/other! NeoPixel Display bar! These are all things you can do to boost the fit and finish of your MakeCode Arcade Games.
Once you’ve been making your own MakeCode Arcade games for a little while, you may want to start upping the quality of your graphics, add background music (BGM), and maybe even use the NeoPixels on your PyGamer or PyBadge to indicate in-game stats!
This guide will share some techniques for polishing up your games so they look and sound terrific!

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.
