Arcade Inspired Game
Building an arcade game with NeoPixels and CircuitPython! This project is inspired by the “cyclone” LED chase games often found in arcades. The enclosure is 3D printed and snap fits together. Inside is an Adafruit Feather, an arcade button, a rechargeable battery and a slide switch.
Game Goals & Rules
The goal is to press the button when the LED lands on the target pixels. The game advances and speeds up as you score and hit the targets. The running pixel changes color as you level up and goes in the order of ROYGBIV.
The target pixels are placed randomly so it’s different for each level. If you miss a target, the LEDs flash red and the game starts over with the slow speed.
