For the past few months Andrew Mackie and myself have been working on making a kit version of Andrew’s Lunar Lander clone game. The original Andrew made up is based around a Boarduino with a LCD screen, has a joystick and a “big red” button.
Andrew then wrote up the code using the KS0108 library. His code can be found here.
Our goal together has been for the past few months to make a kit to allow someone to build their own system around this design and give them the tools and documentation to write up their own games. Along the way there has been a lot of research on finding suppliers for the parts, writing up the documentation and the both of us learning how to use Eagle to do up the schematic and PCB design.
With Mini Maker Faire Toronto this weekend Andrew and I will be taking what we have so far to show off. Looking forward to the feedback.
