The Video Game Shield is an Arduino add-on shield to make your own video games, including graphics, text, sound effects, and music!


Additional Information [Hide]

Using the power of open source, this Shield includes everything you need to make awesome black-and-white video games on your TV. It supports up to two Nintendo Wii Nunchuck controllers for an easy and familiar interface. Do you need to output text, graphics, or audio through RCA jacks to a TV? Do you need to work with two Nunchucks at the same time? You can do both of these things with Wayne and Layne’s Video Game Shield.

Does not include an Arduino or any controllers. Please note that you need a recent Arduino with the 328 chip, not one of the older Arduinos with the 168 chip. An Arduino Mega won’t work "out of the box" but the Video Game Shield can be easily modified to work with the Arduino Mega.

Features:

  • Interfaces with two Nintendo Wii Nunchuck controllers or Classic controllers using a snap-lock circuit board interface.
  • Easy to assemble kit makes for a great learning experience. All parts are easy-to-solder through-hole, with no tiny surface mount parts.
  • Fully open-source design means that everything is freely available and ready to be hacked, including the circuit schematic and PCB layout.
  • Custom, professionally-made PCB provides for an easy soldering experience.
  • Includes a series of example games, demonstrating graphics, text, sound effects, music, two-player games, and easy interfacing with the Nunchuck’s joystick, buttons, and accelerometer.
