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!

Reviews

Great Job! I remember playing Excitebike at a mates place when i was 10...man I'm old. You've managed to capture the feel and atmosphere of the game pretty well :) right down to the painfully hypnotic 8 bit NES soundtrack. Now i know why my parents always told me turn the damn thing down. Funny how these things never bother you when your a kid.

It'd definitely be great to see you guys polish this one up a bit. (i.e. edit the tracks so they run a little more smoothly and don't allow people to get stuck forcing them to reload the game lol) and maybe add a little more to the jousting aspect of the game :)

All in all, a great effort.

Now make it better! :D

Thumbs up for motorjoust......cool game by the way. i eagerly enjoy it!


WingDemon responds:

Glad you liked it man!

-Wingy


great game the ending was very weird


WingDemon responds:

Well i guess its hard to explain the concept through the cutscene, but basically you were a female rider the whole time! (like the twist in Metroid!) only we took it to the next level by making the princess a girl too! (who would've thought?) So naturally the protagonist falls in love with the princess, the classic princess and knight trope. Also the player is black but that's irrelevant. Hope that makes things less confusing!

I feel like this game should have a higher score, it should be about 4.0 average. I don't know why people would rate any lower!

The controls are perfectly fitting for this game, the look and feel of it just reminds me what it's like to play a good game that doesn't need much to make it a good game, all in all it's simply perfect. And that's not to mention that the game this is based on is wonderful.

A deserving 4.5/5 for creating a good game in general.
