This kit has 2 games in 1: A memory game and a reaction game. Both games are available from the pre-programmed PIC controller when the kit has been built.
The kit has four buttons and LEDs to make up two games. When made, the kit can act as both a memory game and a reactions game. A PIC micro-controller, pre-programmed with special software controls each of the games.
The on / off switch and battery pack mount directly onto the board allowing it to be used as built or alternatively it can be housed into an enclosure of your own design.
Game 1: Memory Game
This is our take on the classic 'Simon Says' game. You have to match the pattern shown by the 4 LEDs in the order shown by the kit before the timer runs out!
Game 2: Reaction Game
This game tests how fast your reactions are! The kit lights up an LED where you have to press the corresponding button on the same corner as the LED. The game times out if you press the wrong corresponding button or don't press the button in time.

The game kit you are looking at comes with a pre-programmed PICAXE chip, which can’t be edited. Depending on how well you know PICAXE programming would depend on how difficult it would be to program your own game.Posted byon Tuesday, 15 March 2016
This kit is suitable for Key Stage 3, the chip supplied with this kit is pre-programmed so if you need to create a program yourself you the assessment this kit isn’t suitable.Posted byon Thursday, 1 October 2015

0voteA: Hi Stuart, The enclosure in the image was made by students at a school a few months ago and I don't have the designs unfortunately.Posted byon Wednesday, 13 August 2014
0voteA: The chip is pre-programmed with code specifically for this application it is not a PICAXE or Genie chip, but written in assembly language code. It is therefore not possible to reprogram the chip without Microchip development tools. The code is fairly complex and not something that you would be able to recreate using a flow chart. I would have thought that you would be best looking at how flowcharts work with a simpler task and then explain that the way that the software in the game is written is done using text based instructions. The program is about 500 lines in length, so it's not something you really want to be studying.Posted byon Friday, 11 April 2014
