A final disclaimer: do not play this game thinking it’s one of the worst on the NES because it isn’t. I can think of several other games – Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, for starters – that could possibly claim that crown. What Cheetahmen II is the video game equivalent of an Ed Wood film. It’s a laborious game to actually play, but it’s also strangely endearing and a fascinating document of Nintendo production. Because a good number of NES developers made a mint making NES games, any no-name development company could and often did try and stake their claim in a piece of the Nintendo money pie. Active Entertainment tried harder than most to make gobs of money with their ridiculously priced Action 52, but that failed to catch on with consumers, leaving their second game Cheetahmen II as a forever unfinished piece-of-WTF in NES history. It might not be the worst, but Cheetahmen II could very well be the best “worst NES game.”
Even with the level four bug removed,
this is nothing more than an awful oddity; a delusional attempt to
cash in on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by people who likely
couldn’t make a serviceable Pong clone.
