Action 52 Wiki

The French Baker is the seventeenth game of the NES version of Action 52.


You have to play as a French baker. Your goal is to climb the stairs to the platforms and shoot at enemies with rolling pins, thereby passing the levels.

You may try to keep the cookie patterns pounding, and the bread rising but it's not as easy as it sounds.


  • This game has an unused, near-complete title screen using the Cheetahmen II font. It can be seen in the PPU as French Baker is loading.
  • As discovered by a user named Cheetahmen92, French Baker was listing in the ROM twice; one's in its own PRG bank and the other in the same PRG bank as Shooting Gallery and They Came. After he hacked the ROM to play the latter version, it seems to be an early version of the same game. The differences are:
    • It crashes whenever you fire a projectile or pause the game (although that might be a side effect of the hacking).
    • The music and sound effects are different.
    • The title screen says "The French Baker".
