This product is retired, please consider our Protoshield Kit for Arduino as your alternative choice.
The Video Game Shield is an Arduino add-on shield to make your own video games, including graphics, text, sound effects, and music! Using the power of open source, this shield includes everything you need to make awesome black-and-white video games on your TV. It supports up to two Nintendo Wii Nunchuck controllers for an easy and familiar interface.
The Video Game Shield works great on many Arduino boards, including the Uno and Duemilanovae, and on Arduino-compatible boards like the Freeduino. However, it requires a few minor changes to work on the Arduino Mega.
Kit does not include an Arduino or any controllers. Please note that you need a recent Arduino with the 328 chip, not one of the older Arduinos with the 168 chip. An Arduino Mega won’t work "out of the box" but the Video Game Shield can be easily modified to work with the Arduino Mega.
