“My plan was to test the RP2040 microcontroller from the Raspberry Foundation in combination with the Arduino IDE and the Arduino C++ framework and I needed a evaluation project for that. I decided to program a simple tetris game in combination with a display and an external control.
From my view this is a good project for beginners, where one can learn about hardware input over some buttons, software logic and hardware output to a display in combination.
- Raspberry Pico
- Display 1.8inch (with Pico connection)
- Soldering iron
