Introduction: Arduinogame for Beginners

A simple but fun wack-a-mole look a like. The leds are HIGH for a certain time and your job is to hit the right botton during this time to get a point.

Step 1: Things You Need for This Project

The tings you need to complete this project is:

Arduino uno

A piezo

8 buttons

8 lamps

A shiftregister

and a lot of cables..

Step 2: Putting It Together

Choose a big breadboard so that you have a lot of space and easily can correct an error that easily can occure while having a lot of cables. Look at the circuts and look up ShiftOut if needed.

Step 3: The Code, Not Too Hard and Not Too Long!

//Pin connected to ST_CP of 74HC595

int latchPin = 13;

//Pin connected to SH_CP of 74HC595

int clockPin = 12;

////Pin connected to DS of 74HC595

int dataPin = 11;

int interval = 2000;

byte ledarray[8]={B00000001,B00000010,B00000100,B00001000,B00010000,B00100000,B01000000,B10000000}; byte pointsarray[8]={ B00000001,B00000010,B00000100,B00001000,B00010000,B00100000,B01000000,B10000000};

int knapp1 = 2;

int knapp2 = 3;

int knapp3 = 4;

int knapp4 = 5;

int knapp5 = 6;

int knapp6 = 7;

int knapp7 = 8;

int knapp8 = 9;

int lednr;

int pinCount=8;

int points=0;

void setup() {

//set pins to output so you can control the shift register

pinMode(latchPin, OUTPUT);

pinMode(clockPin, OUTPUT);

pinMode(dataPin, OUTPUT);










void loop() { for (int i=0; i<17; i++) { int prevMillis = millis(); lednr = random(8);


// take the latchPin low so the LEDs don't change while you're sending in bits:

digitalWrite(latchPin, LOW);

// shift out the bits:

shiftOut(dataPin, clockPin, MSBFIRST, ledarray[lednr]);

//take the latch pin high so the LEDs will light up:

digitalWrite(latchPin, HIGH);

// pause before next value:

//delay(50); while((millis() - prevMillis) < interval){ if (digitalRead(lednr+2) == LOW){ points++; tone(10,440,300); delay(30); break; } } //while Serial.println (points); } }
