Which Platformer.... Pygamer or Raspberry Pi Zero

by Blueshark on Fri May 13, 2022 6:47 pm

I want to start to make games with the Microsoft MakeCode Arcade....

My question is which platform holds more "Data"; animation, sprites, and such...

I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W with the Joystick Bonnet and tried some Makecode games on my TV; looks great...

but was wondering if the Adafruit Pygamer is better?

Any thoughts?

I think you have to design a huge game to fill the Pygamer. 8MB is quite some game data...
I like the restrictions of the PyBadge (I've that one, almost the same) but I have no experience with MakeCode, I code in C++ for the PyBadge.
On Linux, that's what they Pi runs, you have endless possibilities. Maybe too many. Sometimes less is more.
