Joust, Arcade

Williams Electronics1982 arcade classic Joust sees you atop a flying bird, trying to knock other riders off their flying birds.

The trick is to bump into them at a slightly higher altitude than they are, otherwise they will knock you off.

Joust is a simple, early arcade game, but with refined controls, nice, crisp graphics, and infuriatingly addictive gameplay. Which makes it fun to play even now.

A sequel – Joust 2: Survival of the Fittest – was released in 1986.
