I'm not sure about the "two publishers" part, but this sounds like BMX Airmaster to me. 

That is correct. It was first published by TNT, but Atari bought the rights and published it later. Not many Atari cartridges were made so finding a red label Atari version is very hard to do.

(Can you explain the Eliza bit?)

Eliza was a very early program that tried to duplicate the responses of a person via computer.  Trying to duplicate it (or something similar) was a common exercise when learning BASIC.  But there ain't no way you could do anything that complex with 2600 Basic Programming!  More info here if interested:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELIZA

Basic Programming is correct!  @HDNis next!
