Joust

Discuss and unveil current Marathon projects.

Hey friends,

It's been a while since I released a Lua script, and even longer since I released one that was supposed to be more than a joke. Enter Joust 5.0, my latest attempt to bring the fast-paced gameplay of the Joust arcade game to Marathon.

Information on the original Joust: Wikipedia
Download the script: Simplici7y

Let me know what you think!

I know what Joust is, but... Marathon Joust?

You are crazy.

What's next? Pac-Man?

I've never played the arcade game Joust, but this is pretty interesting. It definitely is fun, and the controlling the player is decent. The only downside that I know of is that it can get tiring repeatedly tapping the keys.

I increased the flap acceleration slightly between the time you played Tycho's game on the metaserver and the time I released the file. Not sure if you've played the S7 version, but that might be a bit easier on your flap finger. You also refer to tapping "the keys," which leads me to believe you're tapping the triggers that move you forward and back. Those can and should be held down. I tried to clear this up in as little space as I could at the top of the screen, but you might not have seen that version or it might still be unclear.

I'm not sure why, but I seriously cannot get this script to work on a map I made.... Any clue as to why?

Doesn't work on OS X Intel. [MFrown]

And I was thinking a Mjolnir helmet as Pac-Man or something. But thanks for the effort.
