Alligata Software (Rino Marketing Ltd, Orange Street, Sheffield) was a software label and games company owned by the British Alligata Group. The Alligata Group also included a publishing company that published the magazine Alligata Media. The offices were located in Sheffield. Alligata Software was founded in 1983 by the two brothers Mike and Tim Mahony, and their father J. R. Mahony. In the late 1980s, Alligata Software was acquired by Superior Software and liquidated. The last games under the publisher name "Alligata Software" were released in 1988/89.

In the 1990s, Alligata Software was spun off as a company and produced for Acorn Risc Computer.

Alligata Software became known for the game Who Dares Wins and its successor Who Dares Wins II. It is also interesting to note that Alligata was one of the few game companies to develop software for the Dragon 32. Furthermore, games were developed for many home computer systems like C64, BBC Micro, Amstrad CPC or ZX Spectrum.

Likewise, under the low-budget label "Budgie", Alligata Software has re-marketed Budgie Game hits cheaply again marketed.
