Joust places you in a medieval world, but not the one you are familiar with. Here they don't joust with horses; they use buzzards. These are also not your typical buzzards — these birds can really move. Wearing a suit of armor and carrying a lance, you ride your buzzard into battle.
Your objective is to score as many points as you can while fighting the Buzzard Riders. After hitting an enemy, they will turn into an egg which you must grab before it hatches. In later levels a pterodactyl will occasionally appear and try its best to unseat you.
If you can't handle the action alone, grab a friend to assist you. Be careful, though — the other player can turn against you and destroy you. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
