Fascinated by those tiny glowing things called LEDs? As these tiny power-saving indicators become an inseparable part of the 21st century, the tasks they can be used for are being discovered every day. So are you ready to use these little works of wonder to make games people have been playing on computers so far?

Enter Circuitrix! Rewind a bit to your childhood and think of the game which once used to be the most interesting thing to do on your Dad’s desktop – playing Parachute Panic! This Quark, we bring you the opportunity to implement your favourite game on an LED Matrix and prove your mettle in coding microcontrollers and using electronics aptly.


1st round: The task in the first round will be to display moving objects or scrolling texts on the LED Matrix (any dimension). Those qualifying for the next round will be implementing a game on their LED Matrix.

2nd round: A game with a drop-catch mechanism is to be implemented on the LED Matrix. An object is to be dropped from any row of the matrix (except the last row) and a catching vessel (which is movable, user controlled and visible on the matrix at all times) should collect the dropping object before it reaches the last row; failing this should result in a display of “Game Over”. A video of a sample game is provided in Resources.


1) Max. no. of participants/team: 4, Min. no. of participants/team: 1.
2) Minimum size of LED Matrix: 8x8
3) LED Matrix should be prepared/ bought by the participant before reporting for the event.
