The Gamer uses an LED matrix display making it excellent for playing games like Snake and Breakout. The limits of the type of games you can play on the Gamer are only limited by your imagination. Through the use of the Arduino software you can create your own game or you can take an example game and modify it to do something different. There are some example games available for download including Flappy Bird, Game of Life, Noughts & Crosses and more.
What can I learn?
The Gamer is designed to teach you about programming. The Gamer uses the Arduino Uno as the computer which will teaches you how to program in a language which is derived from C, one of the widest used programming languages.
Can I invent with this board?
The options that you are given when programming the Gamer are limited only by the creativity of the person creating the code. There are pins remaining unused on the Arduino leaving space for you to add your own hardware to the Gamer.
