- TV remote controlled SNAKE GAME in 8*10 LED dotmatrix display!
Contributor:Vinod S, Tanur, India
Here I made a 'simple' snake game in an 8x10 LED dotmatrix display. I used the same display setup which i used in the scrolling text display (in previous post). Instead of a joystick, i could use a phillips TV remote to play the game (keys 2,4,6,8). Also, I provided a UART control (via RS232 in PC) to play the game using PC keyboard. I used a TSOP1738 for the IR signal reception(the concept of RC-5 decoder is explained in my previous post). A PIC16F877A is the heart of the system. Circuit diagram is almost same as that in previous post ( the 10x8 scrolling text display), only modification is I introduced a TSOP1738 (38khz IR signal receiver) and a simple UART interface. (using single transistor circuit).
I think no need to explain more about the working of the game ,as it is there in the video.Now, I feel it much difficult to explain the game logic by words... But I will try to update this post (explanation to the game logic) when I get enough time... Any one interested to do this can use the source code or hex file at the bottom of this page.....
