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.
