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 King’s Champion... a Joust Legend!
It’s 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 King’s 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 game’s 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 King’s 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?

Ratings and Reviews
Great, but needs some tweaks
First, FIX THE BUY BUTTONS!!! If you do not have enough money to buy an item, the button is so greyed out you can barely see what the price actually is! Maybe it's my iPod 4, while it runs great, I can barely read most of the text. But the greyed buy buttons are almost impossible to read.
That said, it's pretty good! The core gameplay is timing, but it makes a lot of sense and is very enjoyable. One major gripe is that power ups are sometimes hard to come by, especially since the AI gets to use one on every turn. If you did that, you'd run out in no time. Maybe add power ups to the shop to by like all the other upgrades and equipment. That way you'll at least be able to use one when you want, instead of hoping to find one after a win.
Other than that, great game! And I don't call many games great!
Fun game but...
The game is good. I like the fact that you can upgrade everything and you can go practice and get extra multipliers to use when jousting, but you can only choose from 3 at a time. It's good you get a choice but it is hardly ever the one you need when your opponent has either a 2x or 3x multiplier when you only get to choose from energy boost. I did the practice jousting many times to get good multipliers and since you only get to choose from 3 computer generated options, you don't necessarily get the ones you need. I went up against the French champ, I had one 3x helmet hit while the computer had two 3x helmet hits and one 3x target hits. It gives you what it wants to give you, not what you earned.
This game is fantastic. It's got amazing graphics, great audio, outstanding gameplay, and is very well optimized! The only thing I dislike is how few options there are to upgrade. I mean, you can start off with the best horse in the game, and there aren't many upgrade options to chose from, only different colors. But despite all of that, the game makes up for it with needing skill rather than luck. You need good reflexes and a little patience. All in all, I love the game, I just wish it had more options for actual upgrades other than aesthetic differences.
