Arduino LED Rocker Game!




This is a simple arduino game, pretty basic but insanely addictive. It's based on the blink without delay example of the Arduino website.

To play, just open the Serial Monitor, and press the button when the middle LED turns on. You'll get three lives before you lose. GOOD LUCK!!

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.


You are going to need:

1. Arduino uno

2. 9 LEDs

3. 10 400ohm resistors

4. button

5. breadboard and some jumper wires

Step 2: The Build

Every LED should be connected with a resistor from pin 2 to pin 10.

Follow this fritz, then connect the button to pin 13 of the arduino (don't forget the pull down resistor).

Connect the ground GND pin to the ground rail of the breadboard

Step 3: The Software

Start with the blink without delay example in order to understand the final project.

Once done, load the final project.

Make sure that the proper board is selected!

Step 4: All Done!

You have three lives, every time you click the button when the light is not on the middle LED, you lose a life.

Once you run out of lives, the game restarts.

When you click the button when the light is on the middle LED, the lights rock faster.

Thank you and good luck!

5v is required for the LED to work
