Encyclopedia > Journey (video game)

In 1983, the release of the frontiers album brought Steve Perry and Journey to the forefront of 1980s rock music. Bally Midway decided to ride this wave of popularity and created an arcade game simply titled, Journey. 1983 (MCMLXXXIII) is a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Rock and roll (also spelled Rock n Roll, especially in its first decade), also called rock, is a form of popular music, usually featuring vocals (often with vocal harmony), electric guitars and a strong back beat; other instruments, such as the saxophone, are common in some styles. ...

The featured members of the band are: Steve Perry, Neal Schon, Steve Smith, Jonathan Cain and Ross Valory.

The game starts out with the player choosing one of five planets to travel to. Each planet features a game starring one of the Journey band members, with the objective of collecting his musical instrument (or Steve Perry's microphone).

Once the instruments are collected Journey performs a concert.

The game is quite scarce at this point, rarely being seen at arcades.
