Gaming Ads: ActionSoft & Active USA

Going with two companies today since they are both small and I've only got a few ads for each of them.

From what I can gather from the magazine ads, ActionSoft was a developer and publisher based in Illinois that was led by retired military personnel. The company published its only two games in 1986, both simulations: Up Periscope! and ThunderChopper.

Active USA is a company that released unofficial cartridges containing large compilations of simplistic games for 8-bit and 16-bit consoles. Based on the ads it appears that its games were not carried by retail stores and could only be purchased via mail order.

More ads from ActionSoft can be found at Facebook and Google Photos.
