I'm back and this time it's about FPGA and video and games.. And the game, of course, is a Pong. Mine is called Mah Ponk, there's no escaping lolcats, even here. So.. let me show you it.

The project page with detailed description, pictures, video and downloads is over there —> [alt:Coral Cache]

In brief, it's a complete pong-like game implemented in Verilog HDL, complete with scoring, a Robo-Hand so you can play alone, and Triple Sound. Verilog source is released under BSD license. Hardware design to be released as Eagle project, although any FPGA starter kit will do.

If you manage to run it on your FPGA development board, I'll be glad to hear about that.

I demoed Mah Ponk at $CCA7 and more people than I expected were curious and played it. There's the whole new generation deprived of the joy of Pong. The event was awesome and among other things I touched and played a real Pong TV game made in early 80's. It felt rather strange, I like Mah Ponk much better.
