Tilting-ball game

CICS 256 final project in collaboration with Lyle Kottke, linked here. A Google Sites website also has details on the functioning of this game (made with Arduino, a 16*16 LED Matrix, and an acclerometer). This project was done under Prof. Donghyun Kim.

  • Week 1: Ordering components, brainstorming/planning as much as possible before they arrive
  • Week 2: Attaching components, getting familiar with tilt sensor/using LED display
  • Week 3: Coding basic ball movement with button input, possibly start using tilt sensor
  • Week 4: Tilt sensor ball movement finalized
  • Week 5: Adding additional features (Winning a level, failing a level, obstacles)
  • Week 6: Tweaking, bug fixing, play testing, polishing


  • Neopixel LED display (32x32)
  • 4 buttons to test ball moving input
  • Tilt sensor
  • Our makerboards (or potentially an Arduino Uno or Raspberry Pi, if computation/latency errors occur)
