    I say that based on the fact that there appear to be no EPROMs on the board, and the chips were obviously not wired by hand. The whole neighborhood went crazy over it", Perri said. Jul 16, at Another hint may be that, when the player quits a game and returns to the menu screen, on both multicarts the selection always defaults to game 5.

    It is often cited as one of the worst games ever made. As the name might suggest, this is a multicart containing 52 action-packed games. However, it has received much criticism for the poor quality of its games, with some common errors and glitches between the games being sprite flickering, poor controls, reusing game engines and the ending just being the player being sent back to level 1. Notably, almost a third of the games are space shooters.

    One game, Fire Breathers , can only be played with two players. Two others, Alfredo and Jigsaw, will not work on the majority of the cartridges that were released.

    Numerous games crash or become unplayable when reaching a certain part of the game; an example of this being Atmos Quake , which, due to a bug glitches up the start of Level 5 which makes that level impossible to complete. All of the games are two-player compatible, with all but Fire Breathers using an alternating player system like in Super Mario Bros. The menu code was stolen directly from Supervision in-1 , another pirated in-1 multicart likely made in Two of the games listed are called Galaxian and Exerion This appears to be especially likely due to a prototype version of Action 52 , where the menu apart from the game names is identical to that of the in-1 and the menu itself uses graphics from The Goonies , one of the games included on it.

    Another hint may be that, when the player quits a game and returns to the menu screen, on both multicarts the selection always defaults to game 5.

    However, this was later found to be impossible as the carts that had been released at the time crashed after level 2 of that game. The game also actually has 8 levels as opposed to 5, with the ending giving the player a code to send to Active. Incidentally, it's also the only game on the cartridge to have an ending, and one of only two to have a proper title screen, the other being Storm Over the Desert. Notably, one of the members of Active Enterprises, Vince Perri, was inspired to make Action 52 after seeing his son play a pirated in-1 multicart, with the intention of Action 52 being a legal version of it.

    During the production of Action 52 , Greg Pabich owner of a movie and video game distributor at the time was queried about buying copies of Action He went to meet Vince Perri who gave him a prototype of the game, although he didn't end up buying the cartridges of it. There are numerous differences between this version and the final release.

    Firstly, the intro isn't present in this version and the game boots up on the main menu. The menu itself, apart from the game names, is identical to the Supervision in-1 multicart. The names are mostly the same as the final release apart from Cheetahmen, which is called Action Gamer in this version. Action Gamer was the original 52nd game on the cartridge and is vastly different from Cheetahmen, with the intro not having been included, the music being different and the gameplay being different, although the game still has the Cheetahmen in it.

    All the information in this section is taken from the Cutting Room Floor's article on Action 52 for the Famicom. In Cheetahmen, each character has its own cutscene before playing as them. However, the cutscene for Apollo appears to have no text accompanied with the obligatory image.

    However, this is because Active forgot to put the alphabet characters next to the image tiles in the ROM. The hidden text, which reads as follows, can be found in a memory viewer during the cutscene and levels 5 and 6 of Cheetahmen. However, on the original version of the game, Ooze locks up on level 3, making it impossible to complete.
