Cheetahmen II gets own Kickstarter to mass produce one of the worst games ever
Posted on August 07, 2012 by Oscar Gonzalez

Considered to be one of the worst games ever, Cheetahmen II has been mocked by many video game reviewers, namely the Angry Video Game Nerd, for being an incredibly broken game.  Greg Pabich, the current owner of the Cheetahmen trademark, is now looking to fix the game and mass produce it, calling the Kickstarter project Cheetahmen II:  The Lost Levels.

For those unfamiliar with the Cheetahmen games, an unlicensed NES game called Action 52 was released in 1991 that contained 52 different games although most had the same concept as well as several being unplayable.   Cheetahmen was one of those 52 games that was an attempt for an action title featuring the Cheetahmen in an attempt to replicate the popularity of Battletoads and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  A couple of years ago, copies of a prototype Action 52 were found that had an unfinished Cheetahmen II instead of the original Cheetahmen game.  Those prototypes have become collector items with prices in the thousands of dollars.

The goal of the Cheetham II:  The Lost Levels is to raise $65,000 that will allow for the original programmer of the game, Mario Gonzalez, to fix the game so that it's playable as well as mass produce NES carts of the game.  You can get more info on the pitch video below or on the Kickstarter page.
