Arduino 2 Player Game





Introduction: Arduino 2 Player Game

In this project I`m going to show you how to make a two player pong game with a Nokia 5110 LCD that is controlled by an Arduino UNO. The game can easily be switched on single player to.

Step 1: Parts

Here is a list of parts that i used to make this project

  • Beadboard
  • Arduino UNO
  • Jumper wires (male to male)
  • 9v battery and battery clip
  • 2x Potentiometers (any type but 5k is recommended)
  • On/off switch
  • Nokia 5110 LCD buy on eBay

Step 2: Schematic

This is the schematic for my project, follow it and hopefully you will end up with a game that works.

Make sure the LCD is connected the right way, not upside down.

Step 3: Build It

Follow the schematic as you place the parts on your breadboard,

Step 4: Arduino Code

Download the code here : Arduino pong game.

Open the code and upload it to your Arduino UNO.

Step 5: Finish

Power up your Arduino and get somebody to play with you, if nobody wants to play than you can just switch over to single player ;)

My feature plans for this project is to solder it on a PCB and make a good looking enclosure for it.

Grate job.. I like it.. hope fully one day i will make it. Thanks for the post.

Mine is working, but for some reason my display is barely lit.

That might be because of voltage or its a bad screen.
Good work :)

I'm using the 3.3V port on the Arduino, the pixels are barely lit and the screen is flashing, as if it's buzzing a bit.

Try the 5V port, I think it wil work than.

The screen doesn't work then

Than I honestly don't know what to do.

I just used a 220 ohm resistor connected to the 5V output and it works perfectly now!

Thats great! :)

Thank you nevertheless.
