About this project

An Idea

Most people have probably heard of the game Flappy Bird, where a tiny yellow bird must flap its wings to hop over a series of pipes. If the bird ends up hitting an obstacle, the bird dies, and the player loses. I had also just finished creating a large-format NeoPixel matrix, which made a Flappy Bird adaptation a great concept.

Past Matrix Projects

I have plenty of experience designing and creating games for microcontrollers and embedded displays, such as Pong and Snake.

They relied on hardwired controlled like joysticks and buttons to control the flow of the game. But unlike a simple, one-dimensional game, Flappy Bird requires a map and scrolling capabilities.

Distance Sensor

As part of Sparkfun’s Week of Free event, I picked up their new VL53L1X sensor, which has a laser-based ToF (Time of Flight) sensor that has a precision of 1mm and can measure distances up to 4m away with an accuracy of +/- 5mm.

That made it a great candidate for a motion controller. It also communicates via I2C, reducing the number of pins needed to just two.

Creating a Map

Since the game is a side-scroller, I needed to create a map and have a way to represent it and then scroll through it. To begin, I opened up photoshop and create a picture that was 200 by 15 pixels large, where a black pixel represents a non-obstructed part, and a white pixel represents an obstruction. If the bird hits a white area, then the player loses.

I also made a Python program that can convert the picture’s pixel data into a C-style array for use in the game. It can be run by issuing the command Python graphic_converter.py -n <image_name> -o <output_file_name> along with an optional -m flag. <image_name> is the name of the 24-bit bitmap file, and the <output_file_name> is the name of the.txt file that gets generated. Using -m toggles map making mode, where black gets outputted as 0x00 and white gets outputted as 0x01.

The win and loss images can be created by running the python script without the -m flag where the image is the same size as the matrix.

The map must be the same height as the matrix with an area of black at the right with a width as large as the width of the matrix, but it can be an arbitrary size.

The Program

The program starts by allocating RAM for each pixel, as well as loading each graphical array into RAM and starting the distance sensor. Next, it enters a while loop that draws a new frame each iteration.

In order to make it scroll, there is a variable called offset that keeps track of the viewport relative to the map. It gets incremented every frame draw, and it works by reading the data from the map data in RAM and adds the offset to it. Lastly, it checks if there are any collisions and draws the map to the matrix.

Playing the Game

In order to play, the player places their hand over the sensor, about 20cm away. The game updates at a rate of 4 times every second. These settings can be changed, such as the range of distances that map to the height of the matrix and the update rate.

The player loses whenever the bird hits an obstruction. They win if they make it to the end of the map.

Make It Your Own

If you do decide to build your own game, try creating your own map and use the Python conversion tool to export the data to the map header file. You can also try to increase the speed at which the game updates for an extra challenge.
