Alpha Beam With Ernie is a children's education game developed in a collaboration between Atari and Children's Computer Workshop. The game was designed for children ages 3-7, and features Sesame Street's Ernie as the main character. The goal of the game is to collect fuel tanks for Ernie's spaceship. The tanks themselves correspond to different letters of the alphabet, assisting children in letter recognition and matching. The game had a well-spread release, ending up in both North American and Japanese markets alike.
