Shooting arcade game using CPLD

Posted on Sunday, May 1st, 2011 in builds, CPLD, infrared, sensors by the machinegeek

Here’s a video of Jeri Ellsworth’s latest project for element14, a shooting arcade game using the MachXO2 CPLD. The game is simple in principle: use an LED light gun to shoot the light sensors representing the bad guys when they appear at windows in the target house. The implementation is more challenging, with the heavy logic being handled by Jeri’s homebrew MachXO2 CPLD board, with National LED drivers and motor drivers.

This is a game prototype, so no code or schematic yet.
