Greetings YouTubers, I’m Rick the Tech Enthusiast here with a special video I’m calling SideTracked.

You can probably guess from the title, it’s when I get sidetracked with an alternate build or some cool new tech. This sidetracked video will cover my Space Invaders U8g2 conversion

I got the Space Invaders bug after watching another great video series by XTronical covering his development of Space Invaders for the Arduino Nano. His Space Invaders uses an I2C OLED with the Adafruit_SSD1306 library and a customized ToneAC Library.
After watching the series, I wondered if I couldn’t port his code to the Arduino Uno, using the SPI OLED I had, switching to the U8g2 library, and the Analog Joystick Module. So, in this video I’ll show you my “gaming circuit”; my modified sketch with a few alterations; and finally, some Space Invaders game play.

For this gaming circuit, you’ll need the following items:
* Elegoo Arduino UNO R3 board
* SPI or I2C OLED 128x64 SH1106 or SSD1306 display
* The Analog Joystick Module
* Five female-to-male jumper wires
* Passive Buzzer
* 100-ohm resistor
* Tactile push button switch
* Several miscellaneous jumpers

Sketch can be found here:
