Wow I went to post my new high score in JOUST, but we have no thread for JOUST (1982) yet.
What a classic! We got that standing arcade cabinet that says JOUST on it... it got 11 games total on it including Super Mario, BUBBLES, and many more. (ghouls and gobblin). ...
"Joust is an arcade game developed by Williams Electronics and released in 1982. It popularized the concept of two-player cooperative gameplay by being more successful at it than its predecessors. The player uses a button and joystick to control a knight riding a flying ostrich. The objective is to progress through levels by defeating waves of enemy knights riding buzzards."
The player controls a yellow knight riding a flying ostrich.
ok in Joust the levels are referred to as "waves". The first 15 waves consist of only Bounders and Hunters. In wave 16, the Shadow Lord makes his first appearance. More Shadow Lords are added each wave until there are only Shadow Lords in every wave. Surviving these waves consistently is the mark of a Joust wizard.
I don't think our arcade saves high scores on this game... it also the most fun 2 player arcade game in our arcade IMO. My high score... 45,300
current high score holder on: Ninja Turdles, Pin•Bot, Pengo, Lady Bug, Tank Battalion, The End, Jr. Pac-man, Amidar, and New Rally X. *2nd highest Dolly Parton score in the world*
