The PUP is a simple handheld console that provides the key elements of a game system – screen, sound and user control – in a handy pocket sized package.
The PUP is based around a 20pin PICAXE microcontroller. The current version uses the 20M2, but the pin assignment have been selected to allow an older 20M or more powerful 20X2 chip to also be used.
Six games have been coded so far including cut-down clones of retro classics like Invaders, After-Burner and Crazy Taxi!
The apps are written in PICAXE BASIC, but to help manage the gaming and hardware elements I have also created a development tool called KodeKLIX.
