Online multiplayer – on original Game Boy Tetris #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
As far as I know, Game Boy Tetris is one of the oldest games in human history. The ancient Greeks originally played it with marble consoles. This classic version really deserves online competitive play. Shared by stasksmashing on YouTube:
Back in 1989, nobody would even dream of playing their Game Boys together with people on the other side of the planet. But now, over 30 decades later, it is finally possible.
stacksmashing, an expert in reverse engineering, analyzed the data sent between two Game Boys when they were hooked up via a link cable. Using that, he built a PCB, which is then attached to a Raspberry Pi Pico, which in turn is plugged into a PC to allow the internet connection. Everything is showed and explained in a video on YouTube.
