Update and install games

Step 4
Step completed?

Your Gamebuino has a few games, but you want more? You're in the right place.

All the games are work in progress, so it's likely they were already improved since we shipped your Gamebuino! Here is how you get the latest version.

Download games

  • Extract the .zip archive
  • Plug the Gamebuino's micro SD card in the computer using the provided adapter.
  • Copy all the games to the root of the micro SD card like this :

  • All games *.bin files are in a folder with the same name.
  • Do NOT change the game name here.
  • Only loader.bin must NOT be in a folder

You can download additional games from the Creations page.

It's very simple to install them:

  • Download the game.
  • Extract the *.zip file.
  • Plug the Gamebuino's micro SD card in the computer using the provided adapter.
  • Copy only the folder containing the .bin file to the micro SD card.
  • Do not rename the folder.
  • Do not copy the *.bin file without its parent folder.
  • Enjoy :)

Use your own micro SD card

It's strongly advised to use the micro SD card provided with the Gamebuino META Deluxe as we made sure it's compatible and working. You can use other micro SD cards at your own risk!

  • Format the micro SD card to FAT or FAT32
  • Copy "loader.bin" and all the default games, see above

It's not working?

Turn it OFF and ON again.

Still not working ? Double click on the reset button (on the bottom-right edge of your Gamebuino). This will show a Gamebuino logo and re-load "loader.bin" from the micro SD card. If it fails, it will show an error message and stay in bootloader mode so that you can upload a program by USB.

  • Red broken micro SD card with a "?": the micro SD card not present, not correctly inserted, not compatible or not correctly formatted
  • Orange broken micro SD card: the micro SD card detected but "loader.bin" is not present
  • Green USB symbol: computer detected, ready to receive a program
