Automatically leveling your "Castlevania" character with Arduino

 Nuno Alves had the typical dilemma of needing to take care of his young child and wanting to play Castlevania at the same time. Instead of being a bad parent or ignoring the game, Nuno turned to an Arduino to solve the problem. He has created a device which physically presses the attack button on a PS3 controller repeatedly. This helps increase the score as once one positions the game character at a certain spot on the screen, it can easily stand and attack oncoming zombies for a simple points earn. All is revealed in the following video:

Furthermore the Arduino sketch and notes are contained in the project page. Well done Nuno. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

The package includes a wide variety of parts, sensors and modules including: a servo motor, lights, buttons, switches, sound, sensors, breadboard, wires and more. Furthermore a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to make this an extensive hobby experimenter, inventor and starter kit. However we don't leave you alone to figure it all out, included is a great project and instruction booklet, plus access to a supporting web page and software examples. In other words - this is everything you need to get started for a fun range of electronics and Arduino related projects!
