WolfenduinoFX, a remarkable demake of Wolfenstein 3D, pushes the limits of the Arduboy handheld’s 8-bit capabilities. Developed by [James Howard], this demake recreates 10 levels from the 1992 classic on the Arduboy’s 128 x 64 OLED display. Leveraging the extended flash memory of the Arduboy FX mod-chip, it stores graphical assets on an SPI flash chip, allowing for larger and more intricate games than the standard ATMega32u4 microcontroller would permit.
The Arduboy FX mod-chip, developed collaboratively with the community, enhances the handheld’s memory capacity, enabling it to load and run hundreds of games. WolfenduinoFX demonstrates the potential of this mod-chip by faithfully reproducing Wolfenstein 3D’s enemies, weapons, and secret rooms. Despite the Arduboy’s modest hardware, the clever utilization of the FX mod-chip transforms it into a platform capable of hosting complex and nostalgia-inducing games.
