Arduino LCD game: Defuse

 Once more Emmanuel Turner has ported another game to work with an Arduino and our LCD Keypad Shield. In this instalment he brings us the classic game "Defuse". In this game you travel around an imaginary area of 100 levels with 100 zones in each level. Armed with only a bomb detectors and twenty attempts, you have to move around the area to find and defuse the bomb. It's a lot of fun and reminds me of programming it in BASIC all those years ago. Here it is in action:
