I'm back! This time around, I beat 44 waves of Joust, because that's when it stops getting harder. It has 90 waves in total, after which it simply loops to wave 1,and after 40-ish wave its waves start looping content-wise.
With 2 players, the only 2 things to care of are: killing the last enemy in a wave ASAP, and picking the eggs ASAP. RNG exists, and can mess things up a bit, but with 2 players it's still a breeze.
I tried to never use similar strats (except when the only strat is to stand around and KILL), and also to end input ASAP.
I like how it ended up. My favorite waves in this run are 25-30.
For the old submission, refer to here, for Game Resources on this game refer to here.
I dedicate this run to dwangoAC and someone else.

Nach: It took a while till we could work this out, but finally, an acceptable Joust submission. Great play, good feedback, accepting for Moons.
Note: On more capable platforms (DOS perhaps?), additional waves need to be played, see discussion in the thread.
feos: Will publish...
