Battle Zone! yes, long time ago. Searching in the list I fond that the other game was Space Wars and I recalled another one Star Castle but I remeber it in BW not in colour.

Starwars with Teensy: https://trmm.net/Starwars
There is also a Processing demo: https://github.com/osresearch/vst/tree/ ... essingDemo

EDIT
Although this is not Tek but it is a Serial monitor to display graphics, basically converting serial messages to graphical elements using Processing.

It looks very promising, worth to check whether it offers more advantages (speed, definable graphical element diversity) than the Tek emulator.

This looks interesting. The question is: how fast is the display update compared to the TEK? A fast update could be useful for oscilloscope applications.

I just made a Arduino library on GitHub out of it.

What copyright do you have? Is GNU GPL 3 OK?

I have made a little sprite Editor for the TEK display.

Here are some sprites:
smile face
PFFDDDEEAAAIIHHHJJBBB DDPIAE DDDPHBDA BBBPAHBD HHAP

space ship
PEEAADEAAAAIHAAIIBBBBBBBBBBBBBB

space invader1

@Pito
Still open question: What software license for your TEK functions?
