Use Joust (U) [!]

This is one of the all-time worst arcade ports. Up there with Atari 2600 Pac-man. The bird controls like a freight train with wings. What were they thinking!? And it was programmed by Iwata! Unbelievable.

I'm reading that it was beloved game developer and former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's first commercially published game. "He traveled to Kyoto himself to request permission to work on games for the NES, to which Nintendo obliged."

It's strange because everything else Iwata worked on was gold, even in his early days with HAL. Every other version of Joust is a joy to play.

Maybe he pulled a Coleco and made it mediocre on purpose so Balloon Fight would sell better?

Just loaded the Japanese NES Version (via Retroarch) and got all five point related cheevos on the title sceen.

I think this is my least favourite port of Joust, it's even more slippery than usual and I think the hitbox on the pterodactyls is off.

Lordy, feels less like Joust and more like side-scrolling pinball.
