Joust X released!

EikSoft's first game release in nine years is finally here, full source code included!

Joust X is a remake of the NES version of Joust that was released in 1988, which is itself a port of the original Williams arcade game released in 1982. The graphics and music have been updated, particle effects were added, and the controls have been made much more fluid. It supports split keyboard or dual gamepads for 2 player simultaneous play. Notably, it was designed to be displayed on a CRT TV with a video out adapter, and is scaled to appear exactly as the NES original. The Joust universe has been expanded with three additional worlds that take you through multiple weather and control altering environments. You're also able to change the color scheme of both riders to further customize the experience. There is a ten entry local high score table, as well as a top 100 online leaderboard. Waves progress endlessly so the fun never ends. See if you can be the top Joust Champion!

I hope to use this game as a framework to remake other NES games in the future.

* Version 1.2 adds the ability to switch between NES and Famicom graphics
