Description

Pegasus and the Phantom Riders is a derivative work of the arcade classic Joust. The player rides the white winged horse Pegasus from Greek mythology. Players must approach the Phantom Riders just above, so that Pegasus can use his hooves to destroy them. They will fall from the sky and, if they land on the ground below, a cross grave marker will appear. If players leave the grave marker undisturbed it will turn into a carnivorous plant and revive the rider to fight again.

The game has three phases with multiple waves of Phantom Riders that must be defeated before moving onto the next level, taking the player closer to the phantom island. The game features a quasi-3D effect that all of the Phantom Riders fly in from the distant phantom island. As players proceed through levels, they get closer to the island. The last level has several dangers; Phantom Riders, fireballs, carnivorous plants, or drowning if Pegasus falls into the sea. The game allows for 1 or 2 players with duel and cooperative modes.
