Simple Simon Says

The game Simon in the late 70’s was maybe the first “computer” game I played. Well maybe it was a real computer. I was just a kid, but the game stayed always with me. In my mind that is. The game was from a friend and we played it for ages.

Now with the Micro:bit I wanted to revive this memory and use the Micro:bit as a vehicle to get this to life again. Below is my make code attempt. I used an Micro:bit version2 for this.

This Simon listens to Buton A, Button B, Button C (the touch sensitive logo), Button D (= Button A+B).

It was fun to create and a good way to set me off with the possibilities of the Micro:bit…

Starbit Commander

This game is my first coding for The BBC Micro:bit. The goal is to have a nice target to practice and learn microPython on this device. But first I wanted to have a go on the makeCode editor for the Micro:bit.

I made this simple little game. Flying a spaceship through an astroidfield. Sometimes a blinking power-up will appear. This gives a the advance to survive an astroid collision. Catching two power-ups will destroy all astroids in the field. Astroids will speed up in time but slow down if a double power-up is acquired.
