Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker for Sega Genesis

Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker is the name of several video games created by Sega in 1990 that incorporate the personage of and were co-developed by Michael Jackson. The arcade version and home versions differ in terms of gameplay, but the story and concept remain constant. The story, which is taken from the Moonwalker film, follows Michael, using various music and dance related abilities, on a quest to save kidnapped children from the hands of the evil “Mr. Big”. The games incorporated synthesized versions of the musician’s hits, such as “Beat It” and “Smooth Criminal”. The games have now achieved cult status and are remembered for being a memorable point in Jackson’s change to a different stage persona from Thriller, to Bad.
