Make your own classic "Breakout" video game with Arduino

Make your own classic "Breakout" video game with Arduino

Making your own video games may seem difficult, however nothing could be further than the truth. And your Arduino or compatible board has enough processing power to run a wide variety of classic video games that are quite enjoyable – so why not make your own?

A great example of doing so has been documented by Samarth Artweaver who built his own Arduino-compatible on protoboard, which uses the simple yet effective TVout library for monochrome composite video output in order to play “Breakout”. This offers a real 1970s-style gameplay as showin in the video below:

Although this is quite simple, it shows that can you can generate reasonable video for gaming or information from your Arduino. For all the information and sketches required to make your own, visit the project instructable page. And for more, we’re on facebookGoogle+, and twitter – so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you need to add external hardware or devices to your next Arduino project, such as the Breakout game described above – you’ll need a protoshield to mount the external circuitry. When doing so, consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega we have a wide range to suit your application.
