ATmega 328 based Video Game Project developed in Honduras

at 6:34 am. Filed under Electronic Hacks, Game Hacks

Luis sent in this neat game that he built using an ATmega 328 microcontroller.  He is from Honduran and this system was featured as the first video game system made in Honduras on several local newspapers and some local TV programs.

This is a monochrome game with monaural sound I created using an atmega328. The circuit has 3 MCUs (One for composite video, the IR receiver de-codifier, and the last one for sound) and 3 LEDs (R-G-B LEDs) that turn on depending on some events of the game.

The controller has an atmega168, an infrared light emitter diode that transmits the signal to the game, and also uses an Memsic 2125 accelerometer.”
