Trivia

Contest

There was a contest held for this game. If you were to beat level 5 of Ooze, you could enter in a drawing to win $104,000. Unfortunately, Ooze crashes after level 3 making the contest impossible to win.

Inspiration

The creator of Action 52, Vince Perri, got the inspiration to make this game when he saw his son playing an illegal Taiwanese multicart with 40 games on it.

Music

The music loop in the intro is taken from Rob Base's song "It Takes Two".
