Michael Jackson's Moonwalker

aka: Moonwalker

Description official description

Michael Jackson's Moonwalker is based on the Michael Jackson movie. Mr. Big has kidnapped children and has nasty things in store for them, like drugging them and making them slaves. So it's up to Michael to use his magical powers and dancing talent to try to catch Mr. Big and rescue his little friends.

Michael Jackson can jump, throw magical stars, and dance to counter his opponents as he looks for the hidden children. Stages come in various shapes and sizes from some of Jackson's hit videos which take place in streets and graveyards.

Genesis Moonwalker in the arcade? Pseudo_Intellectual (64872) 2014-05-26 20:54:43



The game design for Moonwalker was actually done by Michael Jackson himself.


This Michael Jackson game (and others with celebrity names) was part of a line of games that were celebrity endorsed by famous athletes and singers. This was part of the advertising strategy for North America.

Master System version

In the Genesis version there are female enemies in the first level which don't attack but have to be hit in order to clear the way. They are not featured in the Master System version.
