Description

In this fantastic course you will learn how to create your very own emulator for the Chip-8 in the C programming language. The Chip-8 is a virtual machine from the mid 1970s designed to make game development easier.

This course is great for anyone who has programming experience and would love to create an emulator but just does not know where to start or has attempted to do it but ran into problems

You are taken through every step of emulator creation, throughout this course we start by setting up our project, then we start writing code to emulate the display and keyboard from the era. We soon move to simulating the entire Chip-8 instruction set.

After you complete this course you will have a fully functioning Chip-8 emulator that can run space invaders, pong and many other classic games.

Good

No nonsense to the point development, exactly what it says on the tin. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, sometimes it was a little too quick for me, but that just made me learn faster :-) All in all I'd highly recommend this course, lays a good foundation for moving on to other emulation projects.

I love your courses sir, really clear "hello, world" for emulators. Will definitely purchase other things.
