  • ardutoids

    Asteroids for the arduboy

  • Arduboy

    Core library for the Arduboy.

    At least the core library seems to be BSD:

  • Arduboy2

    An alternative library for the Arduboy miniature game system

    The pinout compatibility is public domain. The software is covered under it's respective licenses, the most popular library is now this: and is BSD. The name Arduboy is covered under US trademark. If you want to make your own clone, there are several out there already, you just can't use the trademark or include any games that carry it.

  • Ardutris

    Tetris emulator for the Arduboy miniature game system

    I made Tetris[0] on mine a few years back. Surprisingly, at almost the exact same time the Tetris MicroCard[1] was released, which was an officially licensed Tetris device based on the Arduboy. It was a crazy coincidence.

    I still love my Arduboy! It's really fun to program on.
