Alpha Beam With Ernie is an edutainment video game released for the Atari 2600 by Atari, Inc. in 1983. The objective of Alpha Beam is to assist Sesame Street’s Ernie in piloting a small shuttle, collecting fuel tanks (marked with a letter of the alphabet), and returning them to his spaceship so he can journey back to Earth. The game was promoted as a family-friendly option designed to teach children pre-reading skills, such as identifying and matching letters. Alpha Beam was compatible with the Atari Kid’s Controller, which was sold separately, although the regular keyboard controller is also compatible.
