Description from the packaging.
Take your COLOR, PLOT and DRAWTO programming commands to new levels of brilliance with this tutorial on the GTIA graphics chip in your Atari! Go beyond Graphics Modes 1 through 8 and into Modes 9, 10 and 11, accessing nine new colors or 16 shades.
Learn from the many examples of graphic programming- including three-dimensional shapes and digitized pictures- and their listings! Proto will accompany you through Professor Von Chip's tutorial to help you understand the programming language needed to create all the special color effects possible from your Atari. You will then be able to take these hints and put them into your own programs to create the same results! Also included is a helpful GTIA Editor which enables you to create and save your own pictures using nine different colors on the screen at the same time!
Appropriate for all age levels of programmers.
