Michael Jackson’s arcade games to be auctioned off on April 24th

For a full grown man, Michael Jackson sure has a lot of arcade games. Weird, huh? If you’ve got some money burning a hole in your pocket, why not head out to Beverly Hills in late April to see if you can pick up some of these machines at deep, deep discounts.

The sales list is pretty amazing.

How many kids these days would appreciate old arcades? It's a nostalgia thing.

I'm certain most arcade games are owned by children.

:lol:
Some of those games are actually pretty valuable.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: give me the 4 player arcade box simpsons game and I'll die happy.

I've got a Time Pilot (1982). I'd love to add Donkey Kong and the original Mario Brothers to the "collection". Oh, does anyone remember Pac-Man Jr? It was Pac-Man with a built in Pinball game. That one was pretty sweet, too. Oh, Oh and Xenophobe was awesome in its own right.

However, I won't be able to make my way to The Hills. Besides, he's only got one of the four I mention wanting.

Wiki
Wiki:
The game is essentially an isometric beat-em-up, although Jackson attacks with magic powers instead of physical contact, and has the ability to shoot magic power at enemies instead of getting close enough for a melee attack. A map of the stage is shown before it begins, and after which, Jackson must get from the start to the end without losing all his health, rescuing all the children and defeating all the enemies along the way.
The game can also be played multiplayer; if the cabinet supports it, up to three people can play simultaneously. All three players play as Jackson, dressed in his suit from the "Smooth Criminal" music video. The first player wears a white suit and hat, with a blue shirt; the second player's character dons a scarlet outfit with a black shirt; the third player's character is dressed in black, with a red shirt. The characters all have armbands: red for black outfit, black for red outfit, and blue for white outfit.

Dance Magic: Arguably the most memorable feature, Sega takes the concept of the "smart bomb" or "screen zapper" and changes it to the form of dancing, in a special attack termed "Dance Magic". Once activated, a heavenly spotlight shines on the player, and the player starts to dance several of the high-energy moves that have become Jackson's hallmarks. All of the standard enemies - henchmen, gangsters, guards, robots - start dancing with the player and are destroyed at the end of the dance routine (ostensibly because they cannot keep up with Jackson's dance moves). However, bosses do not dance, but do take a significant amount of damage. Any captive children on-screen at the time Dance Magic is activated are not harmed. There are three different dance routines that may be performed, and the player starts with one to three of these attacks per credit (depending on how the machine is set up).

Bubbles: Part of the peculiarity of this game comes from this unusual power-up. Bubbles the chimpanzee, Michael's real-life pet, appears in each level. Once collected or rescued, the chimp transforms Michael into a robotic version of the pop singer that has the ability to shoot laser bursts and absorb significantly more damage.


You just can't make that human waste up.

But apparently he can.
