BBC micro:bit “Mario”

A friend of mine at work gave me a microbit to play with. It’s a great little device with a perfect focus that sets in apart from the Pi.

I’ve never written a line of Python in my life but decided to spend an afternoon getting a basic platformer (a bit like Mario)¬†to run on the glorious high definition¬†5×5 LED screen.

My code can be found here: https://github.com/Sheepalot/MicroMario/blob/master/MicroMario/micromario.py.

Hold B to run and press A to jump!
