Joust (Arcade) is the Retro Game of the Day for 7 June, 2016

Sorry for the late entry today, but I made it just in time (just past 11pm here).  Joust was a button-mashing arcade game in a strange sense — you used your ostrich mount to joust with enemies, trying to fly on top of them to dismount them and… turn them into eggs?  Um… sure.  And you collect the eggs… before they hatch into craftier enemies and mount another ostrich to come after you?

Yeah, Joust was a strange one.  Incredibly fun, though.  Kind of gives me a workout via emulation (I use mame for it, of course) since I have no arcade stick and it’s a lot harder to spam on a gamepad controller button than a real arcade button.  Works pretty well, though.
