Retroball allows you to play with two, three or four players and up to five balls on the screen at the same time.
Please note - The circuit boards included in this kit have scratches on them which happened during manufacture. There is nothing functionally wrong with the boards however - they still work perfectly fine.
With a step-by-step building video and less than a dozen components to solder in – Retroball can be put together by even a newcomer to electronics. Retroball can be powered by any standard USB port, USB charger or USB charge bank.
Each game mode can be played with two, three or four players:
The ball may be spun off the bat in different directions, at different angles and speeds depending on how you hit the ball. It makes for some great gameplay!
If you miss a ball, you lose a point. If you lose all of your points, your paddle is replaced with a wall. The last player standing – wins!
For those who want to run their own experiments, Retroball comes with a built in slot for you to plug in your own Arduino Uno or compatible microcontroller. Just download the Adafruit Library and get coding! (Note: only two of the four potentiometers are available for your Arduino due to limited pins on the Arduino). Some example will be provided to get you started.
An Arduino is not required to make Retroball work however.
A hidden menu gives you access to these extra features:
Due to work commitments - Tindie orders will be sent out on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
