Collect Tutorial Index

SpiceWare

4,074 views

This tutorial covers the writing of a 2K game for the Atari 2600. Since it's a tutorial, I put significantly more comments in the source code than I normally would. So be sure to download the source and read it along with each blog entry.

The tutorial does assume you have some understanding of 6502 assembly language. If you don't then check out the Easy 6502 tutorial before starting this tutorial - don't worry, it's not a difficult processor to learn*


* I taught this to myself back in 1982 (I was 15) by reading section 3, Machine Language Programming Guide, of the VIC-20 Programmer's Reference Guide. I didn't have an assembler at the time, so would hand assembly my code, type the results into DATA statements, POKE them into memory, and then finally run them via SYS.

If you like. I added this because linking to Collect could be confusing as the first thing they'd see was the CollectMini source code entry. I added the brief description to help people locate specific information - specifically because somebody couldn't find info for "sprites" because it's really info for "players".

The blog entries got a bit mangled from the AtariAge Forum Upgrade.  I've finally gone thru and fixed each blog post for the Collect tutorial.  While doing so I added a new COLLECT TUTORIAL NAVIGATION feature at the bottom-right of each blog entry.

 

Big thanks to @Random Terrain as his version of the tutorial proved invaluable in fixing the blog entries.
