ALA Software were an obscure company from the US who defined their games as “Games with Guts”. They were part of a mother company called ALA Enterprises (which was a record label). All software was written by General Masters Corporation.
Unfortunately some of the software for the C64 never surfaced it seems, and at present the following games are missing:
- Proton Warhead
Thanks to Marco Das, it’s been highlighted that School Tech Word Search has been found and preserved. We’ve added some scans that Marco has kindly provided. The game is also in Gamebase64.
Contributor Bryan Caudle from the Virginia Computer Museum also found a copy of Proton Warhead on sale, which confirms it does exist. We’ve added a photo here. It just needs to be preserved, so hopefully it will get picked up soon.
Basically quiz and intelligence games. Here is a scan of the advert. We are hopeful of these actually being out there, and we just need to get them digitally preserved.
Can you help us?
