Introduction: Arduino Space Race Game Version _1

About: I am an Electric Electronic Engineer student and freelancer . I want to share staff what i build with you.

Hey friends. Today ı am ganna show you how can you make a Space Race Game by LCD5110 screen and joystic.Let's look steps...

Step 1: NEEDS

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

  • Arduino UNO
  • Joystick Module
  • Jumper Wires (male to male and male to female)
  • Breadboard

Step 2: SCHEMA

VCC -> Arduino 5V

BL -> Arduino pin 3

GND -> Arduino GND

CLK (SCLK) -> Arduino pin 8

DIN (MOSI) -> Arduino pin 9

DC -> Arduino pin 10

CE or CS -> Arduino pin 12

RST (RESET) -> Arduino pin 11

Step 3: CODE

The code has explanations of code functions. You will easly understand it. If you have a problem , you can contact me.

Furthermore, you have to include bitmap graphic for shapes.It must be a .c file and the same name with code name.Also,it has to be in the same file.

Before ı started to share my projects, ı coded in Turkish words so i couldn't chance every words to english.Here the words translation which ı use this project,

Oyun = Game

Arac = Shape

Dusman = Enemy

kontrol = control

Konum,Yer = Location

Oyun Bitti = Game Over

Skor = Score

Hiz = Speed
