Joust 2: Survival of the Fittest - '12

Joust 2: Survival of the Fittest - '12

Joust 2 is a platforming game like its predecessor, Joust, in which the player controls a yellow knight riding a flying ostrich from a third-person perspective. The player navigates the protagonist around the game world, which consists of floating platforms, via two-way joystick and a button. The joystick controls the horizontal direction that the knight travels, while pressing the button makes the ostrich flap its wings. The rate at which the player repeatedly presses the button causes the ostrich to fly upward, hover, or slowly descend. The objective is to defeat groups of enemy knights riding buzzards that populate each level, referred to as a "wave". Upon completing a wave, a subsequent, more challenging one will begin.


Master Joust 2 and gain Game Club Points!!!
Here is an example of the ending:

The wave counter rolls at 100 and the score rolls at 10 Million. Either one will count for mastery


NOTE: Press F4 after it loads up past the green blocks to be able to play the game.

I'm having trouble getting it to start, just stuck at the factory settings screen. Anyone with a hint? Thanks.

Pressing F2 gets it past that screen, it works in Full mode but says "Unavailable in score mode"

Press F4 after it loads up past the green blocks. Then let it load one more time and it should work.

Re: Joust 2: Survival of the Fittest - '12

I don't believe there is a kill screen for this game. The wave counter rolls at 100 and the score rolls at 10 Million. According to the discussion here 99 levels of joust 2:survival of the fittest, on the wall ! there are 40 different waves that repeat once and then after wave 80 there are ten different waves that are repeated forever.

Good luck to whoever tries this one. It took a $2,500 bounty just to get one person to make it to wave 100 and I don't think it's ever been done again.

To master, get to level 91 - and the game will loop. Or flip the score.

Hi, I can add a little to this old thread. Joust 2 is my favorite game. 3 people have made it to level 100 on a single credit with no pteradactyl hunting. Dwayne Richards was the first with 2.6M. Robert Griffin was next with 13M (WR) and I was the latest with my 2.39M done last year. I made it to wave 100, then went 40 boards into the loop. Strait up playing, no cheating, single credit. I have a 950K game here on retro uprising if you want to peep it. It can be masters, but it's the hardest game I've ever tried to get good at. Good luck to anyone who wants to master this title. I can help if stratagy or advice is needed.

repectz,

EzE
