GraphicsIcon.png This game has unused graphics.
TextIcon.png This game has unused text.


Now with 52 51 more unlicensed goodies. And by "goodies", we mean "games slapped together in a quick period of time".

This time around, though, Active farmed out development to FarSight Studios, the same group behind such masterpieces [citation needed] as Color a Dinosaur and Art Alive, and as a result the games are a little better than when Active did it themselves.

Unused Graphics

Cheetahmen

Action52genmd-cheetahmen-warthog.png

Some art for a warthog enemy with only two frames of animation. It's unknown where it could have been placed in the game.

Freeway

the only game where a playful ball-retrieving dog can be flattened into bloody roadkill.

Graphics for the dog moving sideways. However, the game always uses the forward-facing sprites no matter which direction the player moves.

Unused Text

Challenge

The Challenge mode was supposed to have a special ending screen after completing the final level of all 46 single-player games. However, because this mode crashes after completing one level it is impossible to complete this mode, rendering the following text inaccessible without hacking. It can be found at 0x1B3DA8 in the ROM:
