One of the best courses I've bought. Very to-the-point and concise. All concepts are explained in great detail. A great way to start learning about 6502 Assembly for the Atari 2600.

I used to develop for the Apple IIe and the Commodore 64. I knew they both used the 6502. I was not aware that the Atari also used a stripped down 6502. The instructor is being very thorough in getting his students prepare for assembly. Getting them familiar with the machine architecture which is paramount. I really like his approach.

About us

Hello, world!

Here at Pikuma, our goal is to teach game programming while covering the fundamental concepts of computer science and mathematics.

While some people look at games as just kid's stuff, our team of professors realized that game programming is the one task that uses almost all disciplines of the computer science standard curriculum.
