Joust! It's what's for dinner!
2001-12-20 06:24:23 PM oldie but a goodie.

We need more "Joustified" games...Mario, for example, would sure be...uhh...interesting...

Prove it. In the style of Longbow Digital Crates.

2001-12-20 06:56:28 PM  
Just because you can does not mean you should....this is a huge waste of code....
2001-12-20 06:57:55 PM  
Oh my God, that game made me want to murder children and sell their spleens on the black market for coke money! It was awful. Pure filth.

2001-12-20 07:32:44 PM  
Was that golden god , or golden rod?
2001-12-20 07:42:11 PM  
I thought it was silly you can set up the same as pong back and fourth etc. etc. etc.
2001-12-20 07:57:38 PM  
Big deal. As soon as I finish my cross of Space Invaders and Cock'n'Ball Torture, we got ourselves a game.
2001-12-20 08:48:27 PM  
For real retro gaming goodness, they need to bring back Spacewar

May be a crappy game but it might make for a decent photoshop.

kneejerk critics suck. folks who make stuff like joustpong: cool
2001-12-21 12:04:00 AM  
To all whiners - Make something better, let me know when you have, and I will respect you for being intelligent, until then, you rank with paramecium.

I thought this game was annoying and obnoxious, but kinda fun and definatly amusing.
2001-12-21 02:42:33 AM  
My right hand just kicked my left hands ass, maybe i should try playing joustpong.
</crappy masturbation joke>

mm...crossover games.

mad props to the first person to successfully meld archery and golf.

What a load of bollocks. You all want to get the MEGA-GUN game. Controller that looks like an N64 controller, plugs straight into the TV, 105 old school games, only costs £30
Now thats value for money.

I'm the author of JoustPong...someone mentioned its appearance here, otherwise I wouldn't have known.

I just think it's interesting to have a reasonably complex game that's controlled with a single button. There's a version for Windows as well, though with more primitive graphics.

I should probably go and fix it up a bit, right now the computer can get trapped in a pattern if you let your bird rest at the bottom.

Anyway, thanks to the people who said they liked it, nyah to people who thought it sucked.
2001-12-21 11:48:05 AM  
Kisrael - What about the people who think YOU suck?
2001-12-21 12:42:03 PM  
They're entitled to their opinion, I suppose.

Of course, if those people happen to take on screen names along the lines of "Yodafett", I'm not too worried about their opinion.
