Michael Jackson's Moonwalker is an arcade game initally developed and published by Sega for the Sega System 18 arcade platform. It is an isometric game based loosely on the movie of the same name, where the player controls Michael Jackson who must rescue children from gangsters headed by the villian Mr. Big.

It was later ported to the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Master System as a 2D sidescroller, and when U.S. Gold obtained the rights in Europe, was brought to home computers as a top-down game. All three have the same basic goal. Due to the official endorsement from Michael Jackson, sales of the Mega Drive would accelerate in its early years.
