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!

I rather enjoyed it, and I'm exactly as bad at it as I am at Excitebike. So, I love the game, even though I'm horrible at it. The controls were tight, although I think I was shifting directions too fast sometimes and it seemed unresponsive, but after a few more runs, I got the hang of it. The physics are a bit different from Excitebike, but that's fine, as it was easy enough to get the hang of, and feels a bit more modern which is a good thing as it lowers the learning curve.

All in all, I don't think I'm ever going to complete this game 100%, but I'm certainly going to come back and play it a lot, because it's just so much fun. The best part is just watching the Knight bounce around after a miserable failure of a high-speed jump.

If I could play it with a gamepad, I'd probably love it even more.

4.5 stars because it's a great game, and only needs a very small amount of tightening in places. For example, make the "starting light sound" a bit more distinctive and/or louder.

That's all I got.

This is a good idea but overall not as fun as excitebike. Controls felt somehow awkward, i can't really describe it :P

WingDemon responds:

haha yeah we've been getting called out for that. rather than faking physics like the real Excitebike we went full modern and implemented Real Physics, so sometimes it feels awk for people used to playing flash games that react instantaneously.
