I have no clue how this amazing game slipped through the cracks of our Wednesday new game coverage, but, holy cow. It starts a little slow, however once we got a grip on the jousting mechanics, Joust Legend [$2.99] turns into a lot of silly fun. Jousting, as a whole, is just cool. The controls are ultra basic, but the graphics are awesome. And, really, any game where I can ride Jared into the sunset is awesome in my book.

If there was ever a game that needs the ability to import your face, it's this one. Doubly so if you can import horse faces. Seriously, give the video a look and if you like what you see download Joust Legend, because, well, jousting in any capacity is just really awesome.

    Got this game first tonight; it's a lot of fun! Nice visuals as well!

    Looks like fun, but having to stare at that meter to make sure you get a good hit means that you aren't looking at the graphics and animations. Stating at that bar/meter feels like a distraction from all the pretty colors and action. Yes? No? I really want to pick this up.

  • toxiccheese

    The font and text design reminds me of Infinity Blade.

    I was expecting knights on ostriches...misleading game title is misleading.

    • whitestatic

      At the very least an ostrich unlock.

    • darkcheetah

      Agreed. Disappointing news this isn't a new Joust.

    • toxiccheese

      Misleading how? Medieval jousting has been around since before the 80s arcade game.

      • Jay G

        Except the word "Joust" as it applies to a video game is copyrighted and owned by whoever owns the rights to the Joust brand. Rightfully so, as most people would think of the 80's arcade classic upon seeing the word "joust" in the title, not the medieval sport.
        Had they called the game "JoustING Legends", no would think of knights riding ostriches, therefore, the title is misleading.

    • FredH

      Try Pigeon Patrol on android for a Joust like app...unfortunately still not the original however.

  • JJE McManus

    Why is it last games of the week are always best?
    Anyway after laughing hysterically through most of that video, listening to Jared whine that he want you to buy him better armor NOW! and seeing the two of you succumb to IAP lust, can this be anything else but GOTW?

    The menu is , please Fix ;)

      ^fixed in the update

  • Crimzzen

    We just need mount and blade on iOS.

  • Tim Cant

    I didn't want this video to end

  • defunct32

    Is this a good game?

  • Reignmaker

    Enjoying it a lot. Graphics are top notch.

    A better explanation of the item/scoring system would be nice. There isn't a lot of info shared as to why you get the scores you do and how good items change that.

    Also, multiplayer would have been incredible here. Even if it was just a ghost system.

    I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars after spending well over an hour on it.

    This is my favourite ever TA Plays video, and made me want to play this game right now.

    Simple but looks like awesome fun, and the game face feature would make this game hilarious.

    Hope the devs watch this video

  • David Keeling

    Great video. One additional thing this game needs is online co-op so Jared can control himself and Sir Hoddap does the lancing :)

  • curtisrshideler

    Eli is a boss at jousting. And riding Jared.

    This game reminds me of KnightyKnight that I used to play on my iPhone.

  • lordyokomoto

    Rofl best vid yet guys..... Defo gunna dl just based on your video..... Just one thing get onto to the devs and ask if you can do commentary for the jousts ;)))))))))))))))) this has to go into the top ten games vote for next week :)

  • curtisrshideler

    Also, your enthusiasm encouraged me to pick it up and I'm not disappointed! Just named my horse after my wife and found a new way to ride her. Um, can I say that here?!

  • Scot D

    I gotta hand it to you guys, this was one of the better TA Plays in a while. I'm tellin ya, you gotta go in enthused and try out ridiculous games too just for the fun of it. A dash of Mystery Science Theater and you got yourselves a way to bring in more You Tubers! Either way, this game looks fun indeed.

  • Zdgames

    I was hoping it would be in some medieval warfare and jousting would be on the battle field not in a tourney oh well...

    • Phoenix24

      Not wishing to offend here, but Jousting is a tournament 'sport' rather like a medieval version of boxing, and is not something seen on a battlefield. Maybe you were confusing jousting with something else ;)

      • Zdgames

        Indeed it is and no offense taken, but the joust had its origins on actual warfar where it was used by knights to dehorse opponents who were armored to well to be taken down by swords or pikemen. Not jousting persay but the precursor to the sport, I would have enjoyed swing a battle wage around me as I ran towards my plated opponent

  • relicos69

    Good game good visuals tho I found the gameplay a bit repetitive ,and finished in just under 12hrs! More content or extra joust tournaments would have been great.
