Summary

A cute clone of Joust.

The Good

Conquest has oversized graphics, which makes it much easier to connect with enemy players. There's no doubt as to where you stand in relation with an enemy. The sound is also very good; the Pterodactyl "screech" is amazingly good, considering it's coming out of a PC speaker.

The Bad

The same oversized sprites can work against you; it's harder to avoid enemies, and it takes a lot of practice flying to avoid hitting the scenery all the time.

The Bottom Line

If you're looking for a Joust clone that isn't as harsh as the original Joust, Conquest fits the bill.
