an alltime classic. features strongly in the book 'ready player one' which every gamer (especially gamers who grew up in the 80's) should read.

seriously, if you don't like this game, or it's too hard for you, go back to jumping little cars around :lol great nomination Barra *fist bump*

He should be banned from Brisbane and required to wire cash to everyone attending so they may buy their own rounds of beer at Andrew's expense. In fact, wire some cash to the US while you're at it. I'm pretty sure we have beer here too.

This is definitely a classic for me and is one of the games I am considering as a next arcade machine to join my collection (I'm split between Joust and Robotron)

I also read "Ready Player One" and recommend it to anyone who grew up in the 80s and played arcade games and Atari 2600. It's my understanding that they are actually going to make a movie out of this book.

To my surprise, I've been playing mostly Joust since it's arrival. I'm not convinced that I like it at all, but I have put in a fairly good amount of game time. I still don't like Barra. :D

I just grabbed this score a few minutes ago with a previous (unposted) HS of 78K. Everything just went really well. The game gets much, much harder as the platforms disappear.

One week in and I'm far from the right person to handing out tips on this one (nudging Barra for tips) but try collecting those scattered eggs by running over them on the ground or catching them in the air. The board is cleared once everything on the screen has been removed (eggs included).

absolutely. should be called 'Mr Do-Do' :)

it's close enough to W2 surely so.... just a couple small ones.....catching eggs before they hit the ground will boost your score bigtime.

always try and use higher ground, and in the early screens, take up position on a high spawn point - the enemies can't spawn there if you are on it, and you will be able to 'direct traffic'a bit and force all the enmies to spawn below you.

don't try and kill the dactyls (unless you are Barra or similar hehe) it's hard and it will just make you lose lives. yes they are worth good points but you'll pay in blood!

Edit: got in a quick game after 1am when the house has gone quiet, out to the garage i slink....

https://s27.postimg.org/6t56e1kmr/joust.jpg

this is one of my top 3 video games of all time... it's a much better game with 2 simultaneous players - brutal and really fun.

i hope some of you guys that hate it end up getting into it, i thought the same at first but then it really sucked me in. it was way too hard in arcades for me though and a waste of a 20c. only got into this with MAME.

Very difficult game to give tips on without expressly telling what to do on each wave, and I'm no Joust pro either; theres a ton of stuff I don't know.

A lot of this game is just getting used to moving the bird around.

Here's a link to a game I played tonight. Had 1 or 2 deaths before 170k so should give you a decent idea of how to play the early waves

very cool. like how you were on 460k or so with no lives left but still got up to 650k!

definitely saw some moves on the egg waves i've never thought about - and the way you deal with the shadowlords by hovering above spawn points and pick up quick extra lives.

great video, very educational !

Where you finish in this game may decide who wins MGL30 ... it's that close at the top ... and besides ... you may catch Barra with some more flapping ... with 184K that's a very good score!

Finally got some games in on my cab...gonna keep trying to up the score a bit more. I'll include 2 pics, one is the high score initial entry screen, but my monitor isn't converged very well at the bottom, so the score is a bit hard to read (plus I didn't have the camera set right so it's a bit bright), so I'm also including the daily buzzards screen (after I had time to mess with the camera settings a bit :D )

At the very end on the last day DaLar and CrazyKongFan dueled swordfight for 2nd place and posted scores jumping each other on the table great competition however DaLar takes the coveted number 2 spot with 259K and CrazyKongFan just misses out with 231K for a nice 3rd placing that's one hard earned extra point to DaLar ... where every point will count in MGL30!

Further back Jed, magrinder, creech, fok999 and Sawys all played well on their ostriches to make the 100K club

Congratulations to Barra for winning Game 8 with some great flying and having the highest lance most of the time with a mighty 650K
