Reminds me on how Michael looked in Thriller when he turned into a werewolf.

Game Impressions

Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'? This Is It!

Upon seeing Meowwalker's release, I just had to buy it. The game promises a great arcade concept. On initial play, it will seem great for when you have only a couple of minutes to play something. This is not something for which you would have extended playing sessions but as a timefiller, it comes across as ideal.

Of course the graphics can't be faulted, being both stylish & cartoony. The alley setting works but more arenas would be better. It would be nice to have a bigger play area too with a few more moves & costumes (as that was a big part of MJ).

My major issue with the game first was, I have a bunch of MJ tracks but it only found and played 'This Is It'. Then I realised I didn't have any other songs set to sync and corrected that only to find no tunes at all were detected now. Given the ability to use your collection is the major selling point of the game (being otherwise you just have a moonwalking cat making noises), this would be a dealbreaker...but then I loaded the game a third time and everything acted as it should.

So, a good start but needs a bit more content added to use the concept to the fullest. It's very cheap though so worth picking up if you're a Michael Jackson fan looking for something when you have a bit of time to kill.

+ Cute cartoon graphics
+ Fun pick-up-and-play concept

- Detection of Michael Jackson tracks unreliable
- Only one background (it would appear - I've reached Level 3 in-game)
- Needs more costumes & moves

That video and this concept is hilarious. Is the Thriller outfit the only scene to play with? How about Smooth Criminal?

We're glad people are enjoying the game. Sorry to hear a few people are having trouble getting their MJ tracks recognized by the game. We're working on an update to address these issues, so we'd like to hear about as many people's experiences as possible.

As for new outfits and levels, we're working on a major update, which we think will really add to the experience. We went through a long review process with Apple, but now that we're through that, we're confident we can bring people the features they want!

You MUST do a graveyard level. And it would be nice if we were able to get local multiplayer so we could, for instance, have group Thriller sessions :P LOL
