I recently acquired a few pybadge units from Adafruit and learned about makecode / arcade while figuring out what I could do with them. I’m thoroughly impressed with this system and how easy it is to get code running on physical hardware. My son and I have had a blast learning the system and figuring out how to build some little games. What follows is our most complete attempt so far, and what we currently have running on our badges: Spider Trap!
This is an arcade / high-score style game where you play as a spider on it’s web eating and dodging bugs. We learned a ton from this! It was especially fun giving each bug it’s own personality and movement.
