Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker (Mega Drive) – Free and unblocked game (NO ROM) to play online
Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker (AKA マイケル ジャクソンズ ムーンウォーカー Maikeru Jakusonzu Mūnwōkā in Japan) is a 2D beat ‘em up platformer first released in the arcades and eventually ported to consoles like the Sega Genesis. The player controls Michael Jackson, in a mission to save the kids that have been kidnapped by Mr. Big.
Michael Jackson will fight against his foes with his own moves such as a kick based on his own choreography. When he kicks, there are stars shining from his toes that take down his enemies at a farther range.
He can jump and spin, unleashing an attack that knocks incoming enemies. He even has the ability to influence the thugs he’s fighting to join him in his dance set. Finally, there’s his moonwalking, a move used to escape attacks!
However, with all these fascinatingly unique moves, there’s still that noticeable blandness in game. In Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker, the setting is quite repetitive.
The thugs he’s fighting have the same clothes and actions. Every level has just one or two types of enemies, and you may feel that you’re in an unending loop.
Before you can fight the boss, you have to find a certain number of kids. You can’t fight him unless you’ve already found them, making for a tiresome quest.
At least there are sparkles that appear once you’ve rescued the kids. This effect somewhat breaks the monotony, while at the same time pointing you towards the right direction—or in other words, to the boss room.
Still, you’ll have to spend so much time going back and forth, fighting the same thugs over and over. And unless you’re that into Michael’s dance moves, you’ll eventually feel bored with how the game’s progressing.
What’s good about Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker and why should you still play it? Well, the game features some of Michael’s hits such as Smooth Criminal and Billie Jean. These usually play in a constant loop, but who can resist a Michael Jackson song?
Overall, the game may be monotonous to some, but it will remind you of how great the King of Pop was! It’s a real nostalgia trip despite being lackluster gameplay-wise.
This game has been ported to Sega Mega Drive (this version), and Sega Master System.
