Hello old games lovers,
Sometimes I happen to be a bit late on the celebration and this is the case. A few days ago, precisely on July 16th, it was the 25th anniversary of a huge arcade success, later ported on console, Joust, released in 1982. This game, source of inspiration for another success, NES’ Balloon Fight, and even for a pinball game, was a kind of “strange” game, because it wasn’t set in the space as some of the arcade games back then (we all remember the Space craze of the 80s with games like Spacer Invaders, Galaga and Gradius, just to cite the most important), but in a kind of fantastic pseudo-medieval one (or at least this is what I’ve always thought, since jousting for me is a distinctive trait of the Middle Ages).
However, have you played it? Could it be one of the stars in the new Ataribox?
