7400 competition entry: Lights out game

Posted on Wednesday, October 19th, 2011 in 7400 contest by DP

Bertho entered his Lights out game into the Open 7400 Logic Competition.

After working out the math behind lights out, Bertho decided to make his own using only logic chips. The object of the game is to turn the lights off by using a + shaped mask.The board automatically generates random patterns over a 5×5 LED matrix, and by adding a solvability test into the design he insured that each random pattern is solvable.

He also added a replay option, so the user can have multiple reruns at completing the game. A manual pattern input is available for users who want to solve their own patterns. Check out the video of the game in action below.
