SnowPi RGB - Snowman game

Programming a game for the SnowPi RGB in Python

Previously I ordered the original SnowPi, a Raspberry Pi PCB snowman. With that I created a Wearable Raspberry Pi Snowman Badge with game. Since then there is a new version called SnowPi RGB. There is no soldering required and it now has colour NeoPixels instead of single colour LEDs. I've now created a simple game to go with this new version. First here's my initial review of the SnowPi RGB:

Creating the game

The game is created in Python pygame zero. In the game you have to press an appropriate key (or button on the joypad) at the right time. It's a simple skill based reaction game with the need to press the correct button at the right time. The USB joypad is handled using qjoypad.
