Action 52 Wiki

Manual description[]

The killing all of the green-eyed monsters only to be attacked by their leader.


•If you kill enough enemies, you will get to the next level, but due to a glitch instead of the next level, the game freezes. On the remanufactured cartridge, the game has 9 levels and can be completed, though the enemies get sickeningly fast on later stages.

•Although there was a planned remake for the Action 52 OWNZ project of this game, it was never actually included within the last version, and not a single preview was introduced.
