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!

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

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.


I suppose it was okay. There wasn't much explanation for the bars and whether or not you had enough to beat the enemy, but I eventually figured it out. I don't really understand the ending though. Did the knight turn into a woman? And what was that enemy at the end? It didn't look like he was riding a bike. Was it a robot?

The bars were explained in the Help page, alot of people have been skipping it however.

Well the ending is a reference to the original Metroid ending where Samus is revealed to be a girl. Yes our main character was a lesbian under the armor and her and the princess rode out into the sunset together.

The last opponent was Bones, he was essentially a skeleton hiding inside a large set of magical armor that for all intents and purposes was attached to the bike (which is why only his skeleton flew away after you beat him)

Thanks for playing and congratulations on beating it!

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, the game "Motorjoust" only features jousting in cutscenes. The reality is that it's a sluggish Excitebike. Sluggish in controls, mainly in lane switching. What perplexes me is that some levels seem to have been created with the idea that the player can switch lanes faster than is actually possible.
I just didn't enjoy this game at all. It's a poor Excitebike based around collecting items. It's a miserable experience, even when winning. The only reward for completing a level is another level.


WingDemon responds:

Thanks for your opinion man. A lost of those points could've been fixed with more time, like level design; we had two days or so to develop the levels and lets face it, we're a group of artists, not level designers. Yes they could've been better, but under the circumstances i think they were pretty well done. Try using the level editor to make a level YOU thought would be good for the game and see how hard it is. ;)

couldnt really get the hang of the controls but it seemed like a cool idea


WingDemon responds:

Well we've realized its not for everyone's tastes, but thanks for trying it man!
