Because I got addicted to the 2048 game (http://gabrielecirulli.github.io/2048/
), I wanted to see if it is possible to recreate the game using an arduino chip (atmega 328) and 16x4 7 segment displays.
I started out with sourcing all the required hardware for the game. All of it is from eBay.
After I ordered all the components, I had to wait some weeks before I could actually start developping the PCB. I needed to check the real dimensions of the components before creating the PCB. So when finally my components arrived, I drafted the schematic in Eagle and send it over to some Chinese PCB manufacturer.
and converted this to C++ code for the Arduino. For testing this code I first started playing the game trough the serial connection on the Arduino.
At the end I solderded all the hardware which took some more time than anticipated.
