By way of a Pi Day gift, we’ve news that ScummVM, a popular collection of game engines allowing gamers to play point-and-click adventure games, has now been ported over to the Raspberry Pi, allowing some of the greatest games ever made to be playable on the Raspberry Pi. Created by LucasArts in 1987, the SCUMM (Script... Continue reading
Here’s a little game for your Raspberry Pi and Sense HAT from Dan Aldred. Dan’s a UK teacher (one of those people you wish had been YOUR teacher when you were a kid). So, as always with a Dan resource, he’s made the code available on GitHub to make made sure that kids (and adults) can build...

So there was I, halfway through writing another blog post, when this landed on Twitter. Feast your eyes. It’s a Raspberry Pi robot that plays a pretty mean game of Connect 4. 4 Bot – Raspberry Pi Connect 4 playing robot Written in Python, uses the minimax AI algorithm to calculate moves. Plays a fairly... Continue reading
It’s an excellent time to be a Raspberry Pi gamer. After last Monday’s blog post about some great games that are available for Raspberry Pi, Dana Dominiak of Webfoot Games got in touch last week to tell us that they’re porting most of their catalogue to the Pi, with no fewer than 15 games and...

As I began to type today’s blog post, I received an email from Eben beginning, “Wow – awesome stuff.” I set aside the project I’d been looking at (it’s neat, and we’ll bring it to you a little later this week), because I thought people would enjoy hearing about this right away. YoYo Games, home... Continue reading
We went to see The Force Awakens on Friday. (Short review: it’s terrific and you should go and see it.) The comments here are a spoiler-free zone: comments which give away any of the plot will be removed. There are few things I enjoy more at a fairground than a shooting gallery. (This is because they’re... Continue reading
Why spend hundreds of quid on a Steam Machine when you can do exactly the same thing with a humble Raspberry Pi? (The B+ is available for $25, which is about £16, at RS Components at the moment, if you’re really on a budget.) Here are the Possibly Unsafe guys to walk you through setup.... Continue reading
People have been emulating classic computers and games consoles on Raspberry Pi since we launched back in 2012. For those of us who bough our first hardware in the 1980s, this is a fun way to take a trip down memory lane, but our relatively modest CPU performance restricted us to third– and fourth-generation platforms. Anything with... Continue reading
Here is the most rubbery review presenter we’ve ever met. Bryan Lunduke is here to show you how even a complete beginner whose hands are made from foam can build a games console from scratch, using a Raspberry Pi. A tip, Bryan. I know you do not have hands that work (or, presumably, fingernails); but... Continue reading
I’ve got one of those rubbish Dance Dance Revolution mats at home for my PlayStation. You may have one yourself – they’re prone to skating all over the floor, wrinkling up at just the wrong moment and generally mucking your game up. And occasionally causing horrible injuries. Of course, with a little elbow grease and... Continue reading
