Using a 64×32 LED RGB matrix and the Adafruit RGB Hat, I built a clock inspired by the arcade game Defender.
Inspired by William’s Defender, this game is all about revenge. Offender takes place on several alien planets. The player ship attacks and destroys wave after wave of enemy ships, then mops up the planet surface of any survivors. Near the end of the video we also get to see some other games that run on the clock. All in all there are 10 games under development and many different clock displays.
This mesmerizing display has 4 layers of parallax scrolling, 27 different animated enemy ships, jelly bean pilots that drop to the ground and flee from the carnage. It even tells the time.
This game is built using the LEDarcade Python library which is available on GitHub.
