This product is proudly designed and assembled in Malaysia by TomatoCube*. ??


What is MakeCode Arcade?
MakeCode Arcade is a 2D-focused game development platform developed & maintained by Microsoft®. With a block-based games programming environment, MakeCode Arcade is well suited for young adults curious about coding & game development yet afraid to deal with traditional complex, cryptic & tedious text-based programming. Once you have completed your game, transfer it into a MakeCode Arcade compatible hand-held game device to see it in action. Live! ?


Important Note
This MakeCode Arcade Shield requires a micro:bit v2 board to function. Please select option “with micro:bit v2” if you’d like to purchase the shield with a micro:bit board as well.
