Joust


Well, this is one of the best games ever on the ST, one of the best conversions I've ever played (even surpassing the arcade version) etc. etc. But I'm sure you're aware of all this, right?

...right?

Okay, if you've been living under a stone for the past few decades, Joust is a game about kinghts in ostriches that (surprisingly enough) joust to the death. There are potentially lots of jousts happening at the same time or in very small inbetween intervals, and the only criterion that decides the outcome of each battle is the height of each ostrich. Yeah, I should mention that the ostriches fly and you control yours by the pressing of the fire button.

And, well, that's about it I suppose. There are a few specials, like a pterodactyl coming out if you take too long finishing a level, a pit of lava that you can fall into (or manipluate your enemies falling there), a mysterious hand coming out of the lava to grab any ostrich that dares come close to the lava and three types of enemies (one more difficult than the other).

Couple that with excellent game mechanics, simultaneous 2 player mode and increasing number of enemies per level, this is a real classic that provided people countless hours of fun. Me included :).
