Joust X

Download Joust X
EikSoft's first game release in nine years is finally here, full source code included! Joust X is a remake of the NES version of Joust that was released in 1988, which is itself a port of the original Williams arcade game released in 1982. The graphics and music have been updated, particle effects were added, and the controls have been made much more fluid. It supports split keyboard or dual gamepads for 2 player simultaneous play. Notably, it was designed to be displayed on a CRT TV with a video out adapter, and is scaled to appear exactly as the NES original. The Joust universe has been expanded with three additional worlds that take you through multiple weather and control altering environments. You're also able to change the color scheme of both riders to further customize the experience. There is a ten entry local high score table, as well as a top 100 online leaderboard. Waves progress endlessly so the fun never ends. See if you can be the top Joust Champion! I hope to use this game as a framework to remake other NES games in the future.

Looks awesome, Eikon! But anything you have done over the many, many years has been awesome!

Thank you, Kuron! It's good to be coding again, and to see that the old crew is still around

That looks really nice, I'll bung it on the puter tonight!

Thanks, hope to see some people on the online high score list!

I will once I can run it! Virtual Win11Arm doesn't like Blitz, and I can't run anything better with Apple Silicon. Am trying to find a solution.

Hope you can get it going, Jay. If Blitz is not working, what're you coding in these days?

Everything I do is browser based, now, because.. until that all falls apart due to Google breaking the internet, that's currently the most compatible. But likely not for very much longer!

The game is unplayably fast on my machine -- I tried setting my monitor's refresh rate to 60Hz (from 120Hz), but I am still not able to flap fast enough to get off the ground. Is there any setting I can adjust?

It's using BMax's hertz parameter in an attempt to lock it to 60hz. I would check if windowed or fullscreen makes a difference, then look through your video card settings and see if there's an option to force VSYNC to Always On
