£33.31 ex VAT
The Kitronik :GAME ZIP 64 is the ultimate retro gaming accessory for the BBC micro:bit. It has been designed to be an all in one handheld gaming platform, which also includes a built in, 64 (8x8) individually addressable full colour ZIP LED, screen.
It features onboard sound, 4 x directional buttons, 2 fire buttons, haptic feedback, and breakout points so shoulder buttons or I2C devices can be added. All of these features are fully programmable. We have also included breakout points to allow for the use of larger LED screens.
All of micro:bits features are still available when plugged into the :GAME ZIP 64, so your games can still make use of the LED matrix, accelerometer etc.
Power is provided via the built in 3 x AA battery cages which have been ergonomically placed to act as hand grips which make the :GAME ZIP 64 comfortable to hold and play.
There are some example games in both MakeCode Blocks and MicroPython that can be freely downloaded from the resources section so you can begin playing games straight away. If you prefer to code your own games, it also offers the perfect platform for developing and testing micro:bit games.
