In Joust, players take control of a knight with a lance who rides their flying ostrich (or stork, for Player 2) to do battle against computer-controlled evil knights who ride atop vultures.

This game has 90 waves, and starts looping after wave 40 (in the NES version), so this run beats 44 waves. After the movie ends, one can see how wave 45 is beaten with no input and with massive amount of deaths (encodes don't have it).

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
