* RecycledSoundtrack: ''They Came'' and ''Beeps 'n Blips'' have the same music, while the themes from ''Fuzz Power'' and ''Cheetahmen'' end up being reused in ''Cheetahmen II''. (and ''SyobonAction'', in the case of the latter)

Unlicensed games don't have a radar to get crap past.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The [[SarcasmMode creative title]] "They Came" seems like something the creator intended to be taken as an innuendo, despite the game being nothing more than another generic space shooter.

* FollowTheLeader: According to TheOtherWiki, ''Action 52'' was conceived when the creator observed his son playing a pirated 40-game multicart from Taiwan. As the cart itself was popular in his own neighborhood, he decided to create such a cart legitimately.

* HyperactiveSprite that looks like doing the [[Music/MichaelJackson Moonwalk]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: "Cheetahmen" was supposed to become a huge franchise, with a comic and TV series planned, but due to obvious reasons the idea never got past [[http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cheetahmen#Cheetahmen_II a second game]]that wasn't even finished.

Useful Notes/ pages are not tropes
* {{Shovelware}}: Action 52 can arguably be considered one of the most notorious examples of this.

** Some games ''don't even load at all'', unless you're using certain emulators.

** Some games ''don't even load at all'', unless you're using certain emulators. ''Alfredo'' in particular has the (dis)honor of failing to start not only in the NES version, but also the Genesis version.

Added DiffLines:
* MightyGlacier: Your tank in Storm Over The Desert is this, being so slow that even the soldiers outrun it, but able to destroy the FragileSpeedster pink tanks, the unsurprisingly weak soldiers, and Satan Hosain. It ''can'' be destroyed, but it takes [[DamageSpongeBoss many, many hits]].

Additionally, several years after the game was released, a very unfinished sequel to ''Cheetahmen'' on the NintendoEntertainmentSystem was discovered. ''Cheetahmen II'' had been programmed onto hundreds of crudely relabeled ''Action 52'' cartridges, but was never officially released. ''Then'' Active Enterprises never did anything again.

Action 52 has been given a shot at redemption with two projects: the ''VideoGame/Action52Owns Project,'' (in which indie game developers are collaborating to remake each game in the collection) and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaxU_jlHnIU Action 52 Revisited]]'' (which tries to relate all games together). Hey, it's not like they can make the games worse, right? Also, there's plans of a company for releasing an '''official''' ''Cheetahmen 3'' game for the UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade ([[DevelopmentHell maybe]])[[note]]They would like to release it for UsefulNotes/PlaystationNetwork, but don't plan to due to budget limitations[[/note]].
