An amusing reworking of the classic arcade game Joust, September 15, 2017

This game was part of the IF arcade pack, most of whose games were sci-fi related. Just like the way the original game was unusual for taking a fantasy-based viewpoint, this game is unusual in the IF arcade pack for the same reason.

Wizards, trolls, pterodactyls; though this game is short, the setting is fun and inventive.


Baf's Guide


A prose interpretation of the arcade game, with a colorful setting added. Nicely done. Although very small, it actually invites a certain amount of tactical thought.
