Asteroids Console Video Game Project
One of my favorite arcade games (back when there were arcades) was Asteroids. Such a simple game with a little triangle, shooting dots at blocky asteroids, breaking them into smaller and smaller rocks.
So, DIYing a smaller version using a Picade cabinet from Pimoroni and custom programming in Python and Pygame on a Raspberry Pi.
Nov 2014 update: Cabinet is built, and all electronics installed and HDMI output to screen working. Sound is a bit sketchy yet, but all the basics work and now I just need to learn how to program in Python. Maybe will finish that Python course over the Xmas holidays..
