A version of Moonwalker was released for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and Sega Master System. It retained most of the gameplay elements of the arcade game that inspired it, but the isometric viewpoint was dropped in favor of sideways scrolling. The end result had more in common with Namco's "Rolling Thunder
" than with the arcade MoonWalker.
Versions of the game with completely different gameplay to both the arcade and console versions were released for the popular 8-bit and 16-bit home computers of the time : Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga, MS-DOS, MSX and ZX Spectrum.
