Build a handheld "Snake" game with Arduino

After bringing his portable Arduino-based Tetris game to life, Nick Lim returns with a version that plays another classic game - Snake. Relive the fun of possibly your first Nokia GSM handset but on a larger scale (just).

The hardware is based on a small Arduino-compatible board and two bicolour LED matrices driven by MAX7219 display driver ICs - and the Tetris game can also run on this hardware. A quick demo of Snake is shown in the following video:

For complete details on making your own version, check out Nick's Instructable page. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Need a small Arduino-compatible for use with your own projects? Then check out out our LeoStick. It's the Arduino Leonardo-compatible board that's cheaper and smaller than the original:

 Apart from being one of the smallest Arduino-compatibles on the market with USB, it also has an onboard RGB LED and piezo which can be used a knock sensor and various tune and sound effects. Plus you can add extra circuitry with the matching protostick! For more information and to order, click here.
