Making a tilt maze game with MakeCode and an Adafruit PyGamer #PyGamer #Gaming #MakeCode @MSMakeCode
The video above is of a Tilt Maze game adapted from AlexK Maze from 2019. The source code is in the description of the video.
I switched out sprite moves with buttons to accelerometer which works with simulator and Adafruit PyGamer: check differences in code for the two of them. Not so good with Meowbit. We also added ‘story’ to better interface with the player for instructions. Also used K. Pederson’s utility to import Google image beach ball into Arcade as a sprite.
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.
