Atari Player-Missile Graphics in BASIC
Surprise! Atari has a secret feature that sets it apart from most other personal computers. It's called Player-Missile Graphics (PMG for short). With PMG you can create all sorts of special graphic effects--effects that would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, with an Apple, IBM, or TRS-80.
Atari Graphics & Arcade Game Design
We will attempt to explain the ideas in this book through a combination of text, drawings, flow charts, and working code. The concepts in this book may seem easy at times, and somewhat difficult at other times. The Atari is a complex machine with many idiosyncrasies. The hardware sometimes makes game design relatively easy, yet the concept of an interrupt-driven machine with its timing problems can make advanced programming frustrating. Out advice is to read the book in stages and try the examples. Learn how they work.
Assembly Language Programming for the Atari Computers
The purpose of this book is to teach you how to program your ATARI in the fastest, most powerful and versatile language available, assembly language. By working your way through this book, you will learn how to use all of the sophisticated and powerful resources of one of the most impressive home computers, the ATARI.
Most of the examples in this book will be related to BASIC, so an understanding of BASIC will be important to the understanding of this book. However, many types of programs that can be written in assembly language simply have no counterparts in BASIC, and so for these no such examples will be possible. Problems will be presented throughout the book and it is highly recommended that you try to work them out for yourself. In each case the answers will be presented and discussed, in order to help you if you are having trouble.
