PC Pro is pleased to announce the winner of our Raspberry Pi games coding competition is Abhishek Shenoy.
Abhishek's game, 3D Helicopter Night Strike, was picked from an impressive field of entries by PC Pro editor Barry Collins and the founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Eben Upton.
"I couldn't believe that someone had submitted a real honest-to-God Space Harrier clone written in Scratch," said Upton of the winning entry. "I ended up playing this one for 15 or 20 minutes straight, trying to get my high score up."
Abhishek wins the first prize of £250.
