It all started when the head of Active saw his son playing a pirated NES multicart he borrowed from a friend of his that had 40 games on it. It immediately became quite popular with other kids in the neighborhood, who were amazed that so many games could fit on one cartridge. This provided him with a revelation; if programmers in Taiwan could produce multicarts, why not programmers in America? Instead of putting in games from other companies, why not put in original games you couldn't find anywhere else? Thus ''Action 52'' was born.

The truly amazing part? He was apparently a big dreamer, and accompanied the grand unveiling of ''Action 52'' with a press release, proclaiming the upcoming release of ''Cheetahmen'' action figures and a "Disney-quality" Saturday morning cartoon, and the [[http://www.consoledatabase.com/consoleinfo/actiongamemaster/ Action Gamemaster]], a portable system that would play games from nearly every console available at the time. None of these products ever came to fruition, as ''Action 52'' wallowed in obscurity, but it has gained a new lease on life in the Internet age as SnarkBait.

** ''Cheetahmen'' has [[ThatOneLevel level 5]], which gives you the worst weapon in the game (a crossbow which is ridiculously hard to aim properly) and unfairly quick enemies, most of whom home in on you.

* TakeThat: The Saddam Hussein analogue in ''Storm Over the Desert'' can be killed in just one hit. As a double TakeThat, he is basically a slightly modded sprite from ''SuperMarioBros'' Yeah, take that, Mario! What's more, his name is ''Satan'' Hosain. Because subtlety is for wimps.
