After you download the program you can write loops, draw graphics, and create sounds to make your own video game. Petit Computer includes tools like a character graphic tool and a background scene tool to ease users into development. Games made with Petit Computer are saved to an SD card and can be exchanged online.

 

Below are clones of Pong, Arkanoid, Tic-Tac-Toe, and Snake.
