I've recently decided to make a joke Atari game in my free time. Problem is, I don't want to spend weeks or even months learning Assembly when chances are either

A. I'm not going to finish the game

B. It's going to be some joke game that lasts about 30 minutes. This is the most likely outcome as the working title for the game is "Epic Funny Meme Game". If that doesn't give you a clue as to how unfunny it's going to be I don't know what will.

So I've done some digging and found "VirtualBB", a software that allows you to program Atari games through BASIC. So far I've found a few tutorials for it, and I can confirm that the software does indeed work. However, I can't find any complete tutorials for it, and from what I've heard the programming for Atari is much deeper then just displaying images and spawning missiles.

Is there any tutorials that are actually complete that I can use? BASIC tutorials work fine but I'd prefer would that's specifically for the programming so I can follow along with it (I'm more of a visual learner.)
