So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
We could only wish we were playing this right now... maybe...
This game was never completed and/or given a public release.
As a result of this, keep in mind that the developers might have used or deleted some of the content featured here, had the game actually reached store shelves.

The successor to one of the 52 games from Action 52, Cheetahmen II is arguably as bad as—if not worse than—its predecessor. This is largely because of its inaccurate collision detection, subpar graphics, and a nasty bug that effectively ends the game at level 4.

To do:
Add some rips of the otherwise inaccessible boss and possibly more.

Unused Text

Copyright 1992 - Active Enterprises Ltd., All rights reserved

This is scattered several times throughout the game and is slightly different to the actual copyright, which is in graphics form.

Action 52 leftovers, including the menu text for "Star Evil" and "Operation Full Moon", can be seen from 7B8A-7E80 along with the default "Game Name" text found all over the ROM.


Unused Levels

Although there are 6 levels present in the game, the game effectively ends at Level 4 instead of Level 6. The reason for this is because the game never recognizes when the player has killed the boss in question, which ultimately causes the player to remain on the screen where the boss first appears indefinitely. The only way to reach the last two levels with a regular copy is through a very rare glitch involving constant powering on and off. It's also worth noting that the level layout for Level 5 is a near copy and paste of Level 2 from the original Cheetahmen with the part where you drop down from the top and the stage 2 boss being missing, but is otherwise exactly the same level. The layout of Level 6 actually is a complete copy and paste of the 3rd level from the original Cheetahmen and both are referred to as Level 3.

A patch was released to allow access to these last two levels which can be seen below.
