A new educational game in CircuitPython: Egg Collector #CircuitPython #PyBadge #Gaming @mrcoxall
Another nice game written in CircuitPython on the Adafruit PyBadge: Egg Collector by Mr. Coxall’s grade 11 CS class!
In this project I made an old school style video game for the Adafruit PyBadge. To recreate it you will need to use an CircuitPython and the stage library to create the game which I called Egg Collector. The game will also work on other variants of PyBadge hardware, like the PyGamer and the EdgeBadge. The full completed game code with all the assets can be found here.
The guide assumes that you have prior coding experience, hopefully in Python. It is designed to use just introductory concepts. No Object Oriented Programming (OOP) are used so that anyone with a basic grade 11 knowledge of Python programming can recreate it.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
