Joust is an arcade classic that found new home on Microsoft’s console
In 2005, Joust was released for Xbox 360. It popularized the concept of two player co-op. It is played from a side-scrolling perspective. In it, you have to ride an ostrich and jump on enemies to eliminate them. When you reach one end of the screen, you spawn on the opposite end.
