Yes, folks, back from safari by popular demand, it's Dr. C. Wacko Presents Atari BASIC and the Whiz-Bang Miracle Machine. Now, even people who don't know figs about computers can learn to program and have fun with their Atari. "But real programming can't be fun", you say? Enter the sun-drenched world of the good doctor and you'll not only get a great tan, but you'll:

  • grunt your way through Basic BASIC Training and get in shape for your programming adventure
  • wander through the Great White Expanse, drinking from the Well of Programming Knowledge at every oasis

  • weave the perfect flying carpet while learning the Art of BASIC programming

Create word processors, computer files, games, encoders and decoders, and even models of the universe? Without knowing a byte of BASIC? Yup, Dr. C. Wacko and his band of desert renegades make it all possible.
