Play and create games using the BBC Micro:bit

Similar projects worth following
Many moons ago I bought a Micro:bit. Great little machine created by the BBC for use in computer education. Fell in love with it instantly. Then I thought how amazing it would be if you could make and play other people's games using the Micro:bit and some extra components like an OLED display, switches and so on. This is how the Bit:Boy was born :)

    Here you can see the Bit:Boy displaying and rotating a 3D Cube in real-time. I was well impressed to see it could still run smoothly and beyond 60 fps.

    This is the current state of the project. So far it's possible to play some Arduboy and Gamebuino games. It's not 100% compatible with those systems because that's not the goal of this project. I am working on it's own API and I hope it will be easier to use. It runs at 60 Fps or more :) Check out this video to see it in action if you have a chance:
