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 prototype utilizes "Thriller" fittingly as the song for Round 3 "The Woods" (a graveyard).
"Thriller" was removed as the background music of Round 3 likely due to copyright issues as Michael Jackson wasn't the songwriter for "Thriller". But, possibly as an oversight, stages 3-1, 3-2, 3-3 and 5-3 still played a part of "Thriller" when the special attack was used.
The short special attack "Thriller" soundclips:
"Thriller" was completely removed as background music and as well as special attack soundclips. It was replaced by "Another Part of Me", except for 3-3, which used "Billie Jean".
Furthermore 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.
And Round 6 "Michael's Battle Plane" is much more difficult than later revisions.
Multi platform fall through bug was fixed from Revision 1. Furthermore, difficulty of Round 6 "Michael's Battle Plane" was reduced.
