The project is a color "Tetris" based game compatible with NTSC TV.
Summary and motivation
The project basically utilizes a Mega32 chip, along with a RGB-NTSC converter and a
sync generator to produce color on a standard NTSC TV. The code for a "Tetris" type
game is then written using the AVR CodeVision C environment.
The main reason for picking this project was to be able to experiment with color.
A laboratory assignment involved using a black&white TV to display a game. However,
implementing color was more challenging. It came to our attention that anothe group
had done a color based video game in the past year. Hence, we decided to produce a
color game on a TV, and eventually decided to clone "Tetris" for sake of simplicity.
