With the release of Xbox One Backward Compatibility, gamers can play some of their favorite Xbox 360 titles on their Xbox One, with more titles being added regularly to the list of available games. Microsoft today added Joust as an Xbox One Backward Compatibility title. Joust is a classic arcade game that made two-player cooperative game play popular. The player uses a button and joystick to control a knight riding a flying ostrich. The object is to progress through levels by defeating groups of enemy knights riding buzzards.
Mount thy noble ostrich and ride forth into battle! If you choose to venture with a friend, your companion shall ride a proud stork. Together, defeat three types of enemy knights: red Bounders, silver Hunters and dark blue Shadow Lords. As these villains fly through the caves atop swift-winged buzzards, strike them from above with your trusty lance. Capture the resulting eggs before they hatch or even stronger foes will emerge. Watch for the pterodactyls that infest these caverns—if your quest takes too long, they will attack. And as the lava pit rises higher and higher, flap mightily to stay aloft far from the grasp of the troll that would drag you down to the fiery depths. There are no refunds for this item. For more
