Now mobile games and e-sports games occupy a large part of the market. But there is always a group of people who like nostalgic consoles and retro games, and it even has become a kind of game culture.Today we’ll introduce various interesting DIY games designed by PCBWayers.Let’s go check them together!
Tetris is a very classic casual game. The secret of the success of this game lies in the simplicity of its operation and the sense of accomplishment in finding order from chaos during the puzzle process.@Hacktuber made a Tetris game with Arduino and 2pcs of 8X9 dot led matrix modules which contain every classic function. And the total cost was just $11.
2.Led Game Gadget
@Hacktuber also made a Led Game Gadget. The four colors of LED lights will flash in sequence as the players press the corresponding buttons. And each color light represents a syllable.
3.Hit the Hamster Speed/Memory Test Game
A DIY replica of an electronic speed test game, manufactured by Coinline in Finland. A similar game is also manufactured by DPS-Promatic in Italy. These games became very popular in Finland in the 90s because they were part of a tv-show competition. The speed test game is still fun and addictive. You must press the buttons as they lit up. The speed gradually increases.
