I saw the TVOut library about a year ago and finally got to do some hacking with it.
I decided that I would recreate the classic game Columns which has the fell of Tetris, but isn't

The code is still a bit of a mess, so needs a little bit of cleaning up before I make it public (which I will)

I have done a short video of it work on YouTube.

All I can say is Thank You to mdmetzle for creating a fantastic Library that made this possible.

That's awesome! Why not sharing on the exhibition board? What game controller/keypad are you using?

I like Columns better than tetris, good work

I didn't know about the  exhibition board.  I'm going to check it out now.

Keypad is just 3 push button switched mounted on a breadboard.  Nothing fancy.
This type of thing. http://www.earthshineelectronics.com/components/28-6mm-tactile-switch-pack-of-10.html
So, the code should work with any 328 based Arduino.


@Osgeld - Me too, I find Columns far more enjoyable to play so I thought I'd see if I could make it myself.
