I was looking around in the Arduino world and found some funny Inspirations for old games like Pong or Space Invadors running on Arduino.
So I made some "Play Boxes" with 1.5 Inch OLED display and made many adaptions to some free available Arduino code to get the basic game code running on Nano / Mini / Micro.
I Included a 3.7 Volt rechargable powersuply and the possibility to program the Arduino and recharge the accu over the same USB plug. 3.7 Volts works perfect.
Meanwhile I have a set of different Versions...
was also a good learning for my selve made CNC to engrave and cut the PCB.
The free pins are accessable from outside via an pin plug so the Boxes can be used for many other Arduino programs or Sensor applications in combination of the OLED the installed knobs and potis or rotary encoder.

you can search for the basic Arduino codes here:

for Pong I adapted Arduino code posted by Michael Teeuw | Xonay Labs "Building Pong"
for Cave I adapted Arduino code posted on planetstephanie "sfcave-for-arduino"
for Tank I adapted Arduino code written by LLothar "Scorched Earth for Arduino"
for "Space Invaders" I adapted Arduino code from here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:816047

Why you write plain text to the code instead of placing a direct link to it? This make no sense and does not recognize the merit of his work

Do you want to share the Arduino Code too?

to find all the basic code I added all Info you need .... look into the lower secton of the description.

Thinking about to share my code - took plenty time and investigations to learn Arduino programming, serarching for all the game algorithm and put everything together....

hey man pls. give us your code :) i know you want keep the credits, to creators. but. you just have to give them mensioned. and it all. i thing they are CC so is free. pls friend. your amazing code is just wonderfull. tanks for the STL.

Looks like you list the sources of the code you adapted. Can you please share your adapted code? If you have a github account that'd be a great place to share it. If not, attaching the Arduino sketches here would be pretty convenient too.

Awesome projects!
