THE MOST NOTORIOUS NES GAME IN HISTORY FINALLY AVAILABLE IN A CLASSIC WORKING CART FOR YOUR NES DECK

IN A WORLD OF DIGITAL DOWNLOADS, GREG PABICH IS FACING ALMOST UNBEATABLE ODDS. HE IS TRYING TO PROMOTE RETRO GAMING BY PUBLISHING ON AN NES CARTRIDGE. IF THAT SOUNDS HARD, CONSIDER THAT HIS PUBLISHING EMPIRE IS BASED UPON THE MOST NOTORIOUS GAME FRANCHISE IN ALL OF GAMING HISTORY--- "ACTION 52" FEATURING THE CHEETAHMEN.

FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW, IN THE EARLY 1990's, VINCE PERRI OF ACTIVE ENTERPRISES RAISED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO PRODUCE A "MULTICART" CONTAINING 52 GAMES THAT WOULD BYPASS NINTENDO's LICENSING HURDLES AND ALLOW HIM TO SELL A SINGLE CART WITH 52 GAMES FOR THE PRICE OF $199 OR AS THEY LIKED TO ADVERTISE, LESS THAN $4 PER GAME. CONSIDERING THAT GAMES AT THAT TIME COULD RUN $40-$60 APIECE, IT WAS TO BE A PATH TO FAME AND FORTUNE. UNFORTUNATELY, PERRI LOCKED THREE COLLEGE KIDS IN A ROOM, WHO HAD NO PRIOR GAME PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCE, RESULTING IN THE TRAINWRECK KNOWN AS ACTION 52.
