Three video games based on the 1988 American comedy-fantasy film Beetlejuice have been released in the years 1990, 1991 and 1992. Along with this a Beetlejuice expansion pack featuring maps, playable characters and missions was released in 2017 as part of the Lego Dimensions crossover video game "fun packs" line.
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.

Beetlejuice: Horrific Hijinx from the Neitherworld! is a video game created by Rare and published by Acclaim Entertainment for the Nintendo Game Boy. It is based on the Beetlejuice animated television series.
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 rescue Lydia from the evil Astoroth. Using bio-exorcist magic, players must defeat undead creatures through the cemetery and inside the Neitherworld. Players can ride on a minecart 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 Goth theme.

On 12 September 2017 a licensed Beetlejuice fun pack for the crossover video game Lego Dimensions was released as one of the 10 franchises owned by Warner Bros. to appear in the game. The release consisted of maps based on locations in the film, playable characters, and missions. It is not a full-length video game, more of an episode or expansion pack for the full game.
