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!

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!

Very well made,challenging and entertainment. All seven of you inserted in this game everything that makes a game great:simple controls,simple objective and best of all great gameplay. Keep up the good work. ;)
PS:If any of you could pm me and teach me how to make a game that would be awesome.

Thanks for liking it man! There are alot of game tutorials on NG (including a recent one that was just on the frontpage on how to make games with Flixel) if you want to learn how to make games. Gotta start small and build yourself up.

Check them out, hope you have a blast making games as much as we did making this. (if that makes any sense :P)

Wow, really good production for just two weeks! It really captures the NES style, even the way each character is introduced.

The only gripes I have are those floating bridges on some levels obscuring your view too many times. Overall it is a pretty fun game.

WingDemon responds:

Haha, well on some of those levels the floating platforms are meant to obscure your vision ;) (most notably Igor's level) but glad you liked it!
