The graphics on this app are some of the best the mobile world has ever seen. -- Bullz-Eye (App of the Week)

Experience the speed, adrenaline and lance-shattering intensity of jousting. Test your mettle and push your reactions to the limit on your quest to vanquish rival knights of the realm and become the Kings Champion... a Joust Legend!

Its 1472 and the King of France has issued a challenge to King Edward IV of England a grand Tourney to showcase the finest warriors of these two proud nations. And so Edward announces the Kings Trials, a series of gruelling tournaments to find the finest knight in the kingdom!

Joust Legend is an authentic jousting experience created using motion capture from a real jousting session with the games Creative Director - and champion jouster Jason Kingsley.

STUNNING MEDIEVAL COMBAT
Feel every shuddering hit with beautiful 3D graphics designed for Retina screens, bone-crunching slow motion replays and fully motion-captured horses and knights.

MASTER THE LANCE
Compete in practice tourneys, win special prize fights for extra rewards, earn gold from big-money wagers, learn new skills and progress through the Kings Trials to become Champion.

HONE YOUR TACTICS
Get the edge on your opponent. Pick crucial skill buffers before each joust. Make split-second decisions that could swing combat. Do you play it safe or gamble it all on a precision hit?

SUIT UP
Use winnings to customise and upgrade every facet of your knight and horse, from helms and crests to lances, armour, and more. Experiment with different combinations and boosts to see which works best for each duel.

JOUST LEGEND SUPPORTS:
- Original iPad and above, iPad Mini, iPhone 3GS and above, iPod Touch 4th gen and above

Same here, but am I the only one that actually played it in the arcades back the '80s?

On topic, this does look promising.

I turn 40 next year, you aren't the only one that actually played this back in the day in arcades (**slips into nostalgia land remembering the old arcade days of the late 70's through the mid 90's**)

This game does look promising... though I don't look forward to finding out what the install size is for jousting.

...

Yeah, Defenders of the Crown jousting sequence. I have much love for that too.

Remember this on the 8 bits, still have it on MAME as well

As for this game it does look very promising, might give it a try, love the old knights from England kinda thing.
