Washington, Aug 22 : Michael Jackson has launched an exclusive gaming contest, which involves players mimicking the star's dance moves.
In a bid to promote his forthcoming 'King of Pop' album, which will be released on August 25th, Michael has launched the dance game application on Facebook, MySpace and Bebo allowing fans the chance to win a host of fantastic prizes.
The game will allow users to control Michael Jackson's dance moves as they aim to keep up with the steps during his tracks in a dance-mat style routine, reports Contactmusic.
Hand-and-eye co-ordination is the key to the game as arrows direct users to try and build up the biggest combo they can and see the King of Pop break out the trademark moves he made a worldwide phenomenon.
Prizes will be awarded for the highest hourly and daily scores, exclusive ringtones for hourly winners, and limited edition iPod Nanos for the daily winners.
The overall top five scorers from each social network will then move on to a secret extra level. This level will pit the players against each other as they aim to be the lucky recipient of two round the world plane tickets (for players aged 18 and over), or a Sony Bravia 32" TV and a Playstation 3 (for players aged under 18).
King of Pop, a greatest hits collection to honour the music legend's 50th birthday, will be released on August 25th, and fans were able to choose the track listing of his new album thanks to an exclusive deal.
