Michael Jackson's Moonwalker (Genesis)
|Michael Jackson's Moonwalker|
Also known as: Moonwalker (BR)
This game has a prototype article
Hold Up + Left + A on Controller 2 upon starting the Genesis, then hold Start on Controller 2 when the Sega logo appears. Once the title screen appears, hold Up + Left + A on Controller 1 and press Start. Choose the amount of players to be taken to the level select.
The song "Thriller" was removed from later copies of the game, most likely due to copyright issues, as Michael Jackson wasn't the songwriter for "Thriller".
Stages 3-1, 3-2, 3-3 and 5-3 played a part of "Thriller" when the special attack was used. Later copies use "Another Part of Me" instead on all levels, except for 3-3, which uses "Billie Jean".
"Thriller" was fittingly used as the song of Round 3 in a prototype of the game, but was completely removed from the final release. These special attack versions were probably left in the final game as an oversight.
- In revision 1, a bug allows you to fall through multiple platforms without stopping if you attack mid-fall. This saves time on Caves 4-2 if used. This was fixed in later revisions.
- In revision 1, Stage 6 Michael's Battle Plane is much harder than later versions.
