About Joust

Review 1: Joust is a pc port of the classic arcade game. Basically you control a guy riding on an ostrich who has a lance. You repeatedly press your fly button and the ostrich flies. To kill the bad guys, who are riding buzzards, you hit into them and however is lower get knocked off. After you kill someone an egg falls down and you have to collect it before a buzzard flies in and brings the guy back to life. I'm not going to get started about how Ostriches can't fly and this game makes no sense. It is fun. If you've played the arcade version you know what you're in for. The gameplay is exactly the same. The graphics are 4-colour CGA, so the graphics look pretty bad, but they're not bad for 1983. Pretty much all the elements are here, including the almost unbeatable Pterodactyl. The best thing about this game is that two people can play together. You can both play together and defeat the buzzards together or you can take the fun route and kill your friend (In the game of course). The game is a pretty faithful recreation of the original. It's just as addictive to play as the original. If you want a perfect recreation, get it on Mame, but if you want an almost perfect version which will run on 20 year old machines (though not windows XP ones) get this.



Review 2: Joust is a faithful PC conversion of Williams' coin-op and Atari console classic done in-house by Atari as part of their "Atarisoft" brand. The objective should be familiar to everyone except those who started gaming after early 1980s: ride an ostrich around the screen as you joust-battle the enemy shadow-lords flying on their buzzards. At the same time, you must pick up the eggs before they hatch into more deadly enemies. Other dangers include a pterodactyl who periodically arrives to thin out the ranks of on-screen warriors if things are taking too long, and platforms that disappear under your feet, plunging you into a sea of molten lava. The game includes support for two players, and the 4-color CGA palette does a nice job of conveying all the frantic action and different enemies. This PC version of Joust does the game joust-ice, and brings the elegant fun of simple-to-learn-but-addictive-to-play arcade pioneers to the PC screen. Highly recommended.
