Jetboard Joust, a joyous fusion of classic arcade shoot-em-ups and modern roguelikes from publisher Freedom! Games and developer BitBull will invade Steam on October the 23rd.
Face off against alien invaders in the follow-up to 1989s ZX Spectrum, C64, and Amstrad title Skateboard Joust. Wage aerial warfare, attacking with plasma guns, flamethrowers, gravity hammers, and more while saving civilians from abductions across procedurally-generated stages.
Earn powerful unlocks, choose between branching paths, and prepare to face off against massive multi-stage bosses in this action-packed old-school sendup.
The key features of Jetboard Joust
The Jetboard: Leap from your jetboard like a boss to gain temporary invincibility and kick some serious alien butt. Destroy pretty much everything in your path. You rock.
The Weapons: From the conventional (flamethrower, R.P.G., grenade launcher), to the ridiculous (gravity hammer, gamma-ray, antimatter gun) and many more – Jetboard Joust offers a plethora of powerful weapons, each with its own upgrade path, to aid you on your mission and leave a path of total destruction in your wake.
The Enemies: A huge range of enemies to outwit. Be prepared for them to come at you with all the above weapons plus their own special attacks. Watch out for a few tributes to classic arcade games of the past too…
The Bosses: Defeat huge bosses in a series of gruelling multi-stage battles. These guys will test your weapon-handling to its limits.
The Planets: Choose your own path through a multitude of battlegrounds across the surface of five different planets. Discover hidden treasure, upgrades and awesome new weapons. Unlock teleports and earn huge bonuses by clearing multiple levels.
