Do you love 8-bit arcade games? 🕹️
Introducing the Tinycade Micro, the ultimate dream come true for game arcade enthusiasts! This extraordinary little marvel is an ultra-small 8-bit arcade machine that can fit right on your keyring set. With its retro design, it brings the beloved classics of the golden era right to your fingertips. Get ready to relive the excitement of Space Invaders and Pac-Man-style games anytime, anywhere. Whether you're on the go or looking to add a nostalgic touch to your daily routine, this mini-sized console is your ticket to hours of retro gaming fun.
It is based on the tiny, yet powerful, microcontroller Attiny85 which already comes pre-programmed with an open-source game from the maker community! Note that we do not sell the software on this kit, only the hardware. The software is provided by the community😊.
As usual, you have the option to re-program your Tinycade via the programming interface on the back, using an ISP programmer. This way you can re-load other open-source games, use it as an educational gaming platform and make your own mini-game, or even hack it and find other cool usages around it 👾. We already saved you from the hassle and we precompiled all Tinycade compatible games we could find from the community so far! You can find the HEX files on our GitHub page 🚀
To make the kit even cooler and arcad-y, we prepared dedicated graphics for the PCB 😃
Get it up and running:
Connect a CR2032 coin cell on the back, turn on the switch, and get ready to make a highscore! That's it, your cute mini 8-bit arcade machine is ready😀. Always remember to switch off your Tinycade while you reprogram it, else you will short the USB supply with the battery! You can upload a new game into your Tinycade, code your own or even hack it and use it any other way you think of 🦄
Uploading a new game:
As we already mentioned, Tinycade runs on an ultra simple, yet beautifully powerful microcontroller named Attiny85. In order to connect the Attiny to a PC and reprogram it, an AVR (AVR is a family of microcontrollers developed since 1996 by Atmel, acquired by Microchip Technology in 2016) compatible ISP programmer has to be used. ISP stands for "In-System Programming" (ISP), or also called "In-circuit Serial Programming" (ICSP). If you do not have an ISP programmer lying around, USBtinyISP is a small cost efficient ISP programmer that can be used. The ISP interface of Tinycade can be found on the bottom:

Note: The OLED display does not flicker on the real device. The flickering is only visible from a camera.
