    Remake of Joust for DS
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Chocobo Joust is a Final-Fantasy-themed remake of Joust for the Nintendo DS.
    In the game, you'll find yourself flying your Chocobo character around, collecting coins, pecking at and dodging enemies.

    The game is in a very early stage, and far from complete.

    Hehe, nice to mess with but it has a long way to go to be called a game [​IMG]
    Now, if that was a moogle riding in that chocobo's back it'd have been an instant success [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Omg you'd got me at the word Joust! Me and my sister used to play the original when we were kids, it was hilarious in multiplayer. Hours of entertainment from 2 flying emus (or whatever they were). I am so trying this this afternoon [​IMG]

    [Edit]: And a rather nice piece of homebrew it is; side scrolling and collecting coins works surprisingly well with the old concept. The backgrounds are pretty sweet. The screen gap threw me off a bit but that comes with the territory on the DS. Only minor quibble is that when you hit a wall the rebound seems a bit strong, it takes a while to recover but maybe that's intentional (wouldn't want it to be too easy now would we?). Nicely done [​IMG]

    The original joust had a strong rebound also.

    There was a chocobo that could fly on FF7 and FF4(FF2 (USA)). I think it was the black one?
    I also have posted this a few days back on the user news page. [​IMG]
