Welcome to Motorjoust! A game made in 2 weeks by Team Midnight Moose Party for the Newgrounds Game Jam #9!

Take on the roll of a knight who has been invited to take part in the King's Tournament of Champions. You will have to fight your way through the best jousters in the land, while dodging obstacles and gaining air on crazy jumps!
-----------------------
Controls:
Up/Down - Steer
Left/Right - Balance
Spacebar - Accelerate
Shift - Reverse (Warning: Painfully slow)
M - Mute
P - Pause
Esc - Quit
-----------------------

As an added bonus, we decided to incorporated our level editor into the game so you can design your own levels, and then share them with your friends via the Newgrounds API!

Based off of the concept screenshot by devilsgarage:

SIDENOTE: This game was made as an homage to the classic NES game Excitebike! We tried to make it as retro as possible without taking away from a great user experience! If you look closely you'll find references to classic NES titles like Megaman and The Legend of Zelda!

It's hard to recommend a game you have such little comprehension of. I really should have known that this was part of another NG game jam. I didn't understand why there wasn't any sound in it when I played it. I was thinking it was some mistake as there was sound in the cutscenes. It's hard to look for medals when you don't know what any of them are. The graphics weren't terrible, I guess.

I was just looking for something easier to understand. I didn't know how to jump or anything. I imagine you just have to go into the other lane. It's pretty unique, I suppose. I'm not much a fan of the original game.


WingDemon responds:

Well, to answer some of your questions bro, there was music. I guess it didn't work for you for some reason, try checking your flash version and sound settings. The medals are all for doing normal parts of the game so you earn them just by playing the game, we didn't want to force people into certain circumstances (like making them use the editor just to earn a medal) so we made them hidden. And the graphics were an homage to classic NES games like Excitebike and Megaman and stuff.

anyway thanks for trying it out, glad you thought it was unique.

So how do you actually win the jousts? It seems completely random to me. Poor gameplay. Obstacles do nothing, power and magic seem to do nothing. Needs a tutorial or some kind of explanation.


WingDemon responds:

I don't blame you for not 'understanding' the game. Giving players instructions was very much an afterthought, however we DID include them at the beginning of your first playthrough and on the main menu under "Help". Don't skip em next time :P

Hey Man, sorry you couldn't get the game. There's another review on here i went into a little more depth about the gameplay that you could check out if you wanted, but basically your pow/mag bars display both yours and your opponents pow/mag at the same time and you have to get higher then him in one of the categories. there's more too it, but you gotta read the instructions in the game man.

Cool game people! You did a great job! Fun, skill, humour, replay value. It has everything a game needs. The graphics are top notch. The music is really great. The level design thing adds a lot to the longevity of the game I think. Very clever. I'm not disappoint!

Wow you guys, this game is awesome. You nailed the retro vibe and the game play was perfect.

Yeaaah we had so many long conversations about how to keep it as NES as possible while keeping the game modern and user friendly, even having the real physics instead of 'faked physics' (like all NES games and most flash games) took a bit of bickering to say yes too, but we are tremendously proud of our final product. Glad you liked it!

I suck at this game, but I found it quite fun. This game seems like it would be a money-maker at an old-school arcade. Great job!
