Alpha Beam With Ernie

Alpha Beam With Ernie was a video game for the Atari 2600 developed by Atari and Children's Computer Workshop[?] and released in 1983.

The object of Alpha Beam is to help Ernie pilot a small shuttle, collect fuel tanks (marked by a letter of the alphabet), and return them to his space ship so that he can return to Earth. This game was marketed as a family-friendly game that would teach children pre-reading skills such as identifying and matching letters.

Alpha Beam used an Atari Kid's Controller[?] (sold separately), although the regular keyboard controller would also work.

Programmers: Michael Callahan[?] & Preston Stuart[?]
