Alpha Runner

Power House

Status: No Download, Findability: 2/5

Part of a series of Power House titles which never quite saw the light of day, or at least are not picked up in Gamebase 64.

Did this game ever get a release?

Certainly this title although mentioned in Zzap 64 September 1988, never actually got reviewed, but only mentioned briefly with a series of other Power House titles which were on the way.

Alpha Runner was deemed as a shoot-em-up with very little plot, but plenty of blasting. This was all the information given out on this interesting title.

The quality of most Power House titles left a lot to be desired, and it is possible that this also would have been dire like many of their other games. But the curiousity is still there to find out exactly what it was like… Who knows?…

Jason Aldred confirmed that he created the game with his school friend Steven Derek Green. It was their first ever commercial title, which sadly never got released. We hope to learn more soon about the game, but sadly Jason confirms that he no longer has it. Maybe someone else can help us find it?

Jason recently in 2017 released a new C64 game called Galencia, which we recommend checking out! …

Can it be found, or is it lost forever?…
