Tool-assisted movies (1)

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).

Watch this run being played back on a real console. (Note: On Console, and BizHawk version 2.8, wave 45 is not beaten.)
