Jouster 5 is a single-player, keyboard/joystick controlled, Joust clone. It is the successor to Jouster 4 which also ran on the PC while Jouster 3 and earlier games were written for the Amiga.

Based on the famous ostrich-riding game from Midway this game also has the player riding a flying ostrich and battling knights on similar steeds. Using keyboard controls the player must continually tap the spacebar to gain and maintain height while the arrow keys control direction. The game can play in differently sized game areas, animated background, power ups, and sound effects.
