I have been working on and off on a little project, using Raspberry Pi A+ and Unicorn Hats (I have about 20!).
The project started out as a retro arcade clock, but it morphed into much more. So far I have 8 “games” that the system plays, plus many animations. It also tells the time!
I will put together a video demo and share it here. What I am wondering is what do I do next with this project? I coded everything in python, re-inventing many wheels I am sure. I have a system that lets me draw animated full color sprites, have virtual playfields many times larger than the display, have a moving camera that displays all objects within an 8x8 section of the playfield, etc. The objects in the playfield interact with each other using even when off screen.
The clock plays games inspired by:
- space invaders
- tron light cycle
- Virus Outbreak
