BBC micro:bit – Simon Game

simon-gameIn this blog post we are looking at recreating a fully working Simon Game using the BBC micro:bit.

If you are not sure what a Simon Game is you can check it on this wikipedia page.

You can watch the following two video clips to see the game in action, and understand the Python code used to implement it.

You will notice that our version of the game is simpler as we only use the two inputs from the micro:bit (A and B buttons) whereas the real Simon game is a bit more complex as it has four lights/buttons. The logic of the game remains the same though.
