Three video games have been created in the years 1990, 1991 and 1992. They are based on the 1988 American comedy-fantasy Beetlejuice.
Adventures of Beetlejuice: Skeletons in the Closet was published by Hi-Tech Expressions and developed by Riedel Software Productions. This version is based on the animated cartoon series rather than the feature film. As Betelgeuse, the player must battle various skeletons and other monsters by shooting loogie projectiles and protecting Lydia as she cleans up the resulting mess.

The game begins with the player taking control of Beetlejuice as he attempts to get rid of all the ghosts that he invited into Lydia Deetz's house (where she lives with her mother and father). He must then rescue Lydia from the evil Astoroth. Using bio-exorcist magic, players must defeat undead creatures through the cemetery and even inside the Neitherworld. Players can also ride on a mine cart and a Pogosnake (that operates in a similar fashion to Super Mario World's Yoshi). There are some elements of animated violence along with a dark Gothic theme (that explores into the realms of hauntings) in this video game.
