Active Enterprises

By: SPMAN

    This one manned company was literally run out of a garage in Florida. They only officially released one game, Action 52. It was available via Mail order in 1991 for the hefty sum of 200 bucks. After the company realized that they weren’t going to sell them at this price, they wholesaled them off and were found at local flea markets and crappy video stores. Then once again in 1993 they attempted to sell them through mail order for 100 bucks. Eventually the company ran into a heap of debt and put itself out of business. A few years after they folded the company that distributed the carts liquidated copies of their second game Cheetahman 2 to local merchants. The distribution company was never paid for the carts by Active Enterprises and instead of sitting on pile after pile of unsold games, they just dumped them. For more info on the company check out http://atarihq.com/tsr/odd/scans/active.html and http://atarihq.com/tsr/special/active.htm. There 2 games are:

Action 52

Cheetahmen 2

    The games are putrid and easily the worst on the system. You have to respect their ambition though. They set high goals for themselves that they couldn’t possibly have achieved, but who cares! This company proves that if you have the ambition you can do whatever you want! You almost definitely wont find both of these games anywhere but eBay and not for less than 30 dollars.

Popularity of the games: Low

Rarity of the games: Extremely High

Overall Rating: A for Effort, F for everything else.
