Not everyone will enjoy Joust - many find the inertial control method difficult to master - but if you enjoy a challenge and are into weird games, this one's a must.

JOUST est un jeu détonnant aux graphismes fins et d'une grande maniabilité. Les bruitages sont réduits à leur plus simple expression. JOUST est aussi un jeu fantastique lorsqu'il est joué à deux joueurs.

Although Joust is a very dated game, the finely-detailed character graphics in this conversion are impressive. Playing alone could become a little repetitive, but the two-player mode is very good indeed and the arcade playability remains intact.

Véritable ovni vidéoludique, Joust surprend grâce à un concept de jeu unique qui se situe entre le beat'em all et le shoot'em up. Imaginez des chevaliers montant des autruches volantes et s'affrontant dans les entrailles de la terre, où seul le survivant de joutes aériennes est élu vainqueur. C'est ce que propose Williams Electronics. Doté d'un gameplay déroutant au premier abord et de graphismes très épurés, le soft mérite que l'on s'y attarde le temps de quelques parties tellement l'expérience s'avère atypique et divertissante. Les fans de scoring pourront ajouter quelques points à la note générale car le jeu leur est clairement destiné. Les autres y reviendront pour des parties multijoueurs endiablées.

As described, Joust is a piece of arcade history which has stood the test of time through the arcade, the VCS game console and the eight-bit market. But in its fourth generation of conversion, what does it have to offer sixteen-bit users? If Joust was released as a new game today, it would still be considered highly original and it is certainly excellent for two-player participation.
