A downloadable game

We wanted to build a visceral interface to allow students just starting out with C# console applications to display their games.

It has an Arduino powered Neopixel display panel which receives instructions over serial communications from a PC. The PC has an interface that is capturing the Console.Write output of the console app and transmitting data to the Arduino to display. The final piece of the puzzle is a console application game to generate output.

As a Three Thing Game, our three words were Falling, Laser, and Cat. The game has a collection of 9 cats milling around on the ground (representing your nine lives). Objects are falling from the sky and you have to protect the cats by shooting them with your laser. You get points for shooting stuff. Get as many points as you can before all of your cats die.

The end.
