Introduction: Neopixel Arcade Led Game

This is a small game made by Me {Anni Boy } using Arduino UNO in Tinkercad Circuits. You can also use real-life Arduino instead of using Tinkercad for higher performance. Follow the steps shown below...

Step 1: Gather Supplies or Parts to Make

Components:

1. Arduino UNO

2. Liquid Crystal Display (LCD 16x2)

3. 4x Neopixel Strips

4. 200ohm resistor

5. SolderlessBreadboard

6. 2x Push Buttons

7 (If using physical parts). Male to Male jumper wires

Step 2: Wiring and Arrangement of Units

The above image shows the connection between the units, there is a hidden connection in the diagram which is

behind the Neopixel strips, that connection is pretty simple, that is just a repeated connection of strips to form a small matrix. Connect the first 3 strips to each other (Make sure to check the sides of in and out)

and the last one separated of all to the Arduino directly, as shown in the figure above.

You can arrange it as you like or just keep the same as in the image.

Step 3: Code (Given)

Download the given code ' .ino' file and open it up

copy-paste the whole to the IDE of Tinkercad Circuits (Text mode of code)

or if using the physical Arduino {real life} then compile the code and burn it to your UNO.

Step 4: Game Ready to Play (Example Step)

Here is an example video of what the game is in Tinkercad Circuits, Again, as told earlier, the game in the Tinkercad when you start the simulation, is not as smooth functioning as to be in real life, so yeah...Enjoy :)

Fascinating,
I like how I found this instructable randomly and got into making an arcade game with Arduino when I dont even do play with electronics that much.

Thanks for mentioning the connections behind the neostrips.
I like how the code at first tells you how to play and then begin :)

Hey! It was fun learning such an awesome game, also I got to know about a twist, which was a Level 2 and Freedom mode which was surprisingly cool.

Your welcome :)
There are actually 3 stages of the game, 1Stage - Collection of red balls, 2Stage - Collect reds but Avoid Green balls and finally 3Stage - Freedom, freedom where you can challenge your friends to beat your score in your time.
