Author :  tinkerBOY

Hello everyone! I’m tinkerBOY from the Philippines. I love retro gaming, electronics, and making controller boards for  the Game Boy Zero. I learned about Gamebuino maybe a few months back and was immediately impressed.i just bought my first Gamebuino yesterday and I’m looking forward to play with it and maybe learn to make games too.

Hi there and welcome to the community!

Glad you se to like the gamebuino so far, and be sure to enjoy your stay here! If you have any questions, no matter how big or how small, don't hesitate to ask!

Yes welcome and i hope you'll have fun with games and will want to make some too. Me, i like both. As many fun to create, many fun to test, some frustration when i don't success to do something, but alot joy when i finish to find a solution and alot fun when i discover games from others or technics they explain to do something (a car race, a doom-like game, a technic to be able to use full rez of the META, etc...).

If you want try, you can follow the tutos of the Academy and personnalize a little the examples to modify how they works. You can make errors as we remember alot more with errors than with success.   :)

Can’t wait to try it out.  I bought the Gamebuino Classic so any tips on where to start downloading games for it? 

I will surely buy the Meta version too. :)

Thank you guys!

Afaik there is a SD Card included, which already contains a lot of games. So you can start playing right away.

You can find games for the classic here: http://legacy.gamebuino.com/wiki/index.php?title=Games

Amd some newer ones on the creations page (keep an eye out which ones are for the classic and which ones for the meta!): https://gamebuino.com/creations

Yes, but now you have to search among the creations. Before, you was able to filter the ones done for META or for the Classic. I think they have remove it to make the interface more simple but as their is less creations atm on classic, it's more difficult to find them. As user of one classic, ask to the Gamebuino team if you need this filter. For me it's could be very usefull and alot more easy to make your own downloadble collection of new games after having bought this little cool console.
