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?
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.

Close to Perfect
I've never felt the need to wright a review about any other game before so I think that says a lot about how much I enjoy it. While there's much to praise like the graphics and purely addictive play and plot there is also some things I'd like to see changed. First and foremost is the use of skills in prize fights, you're there to get'em not use'em so I propose instead that if you lose you have to give up one just like the other guy and have levels in it like in the gamble with 1,2, or 3 at steak. Second and not so important to game play as much as it is character connection is the lack of customization for your targe it is your identity and I at least wish there was more options. While this game can be completely infuriating especially when you finally beat the kings tourney only to lose to France and have to start all over again I thinks that's what makes it so much fun. The challenge and the risk makes you feel like you're really there in the saddle charging down the track heart racing aiming for that helm and plume for your country and you're own satisfaction when the opponent goes crashing to the ground.
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!
I love this game. I am totally addicted. The graphics are amazing, gameplay awesome, and is just a perfectly crafted game. I would love to see future updates that include even more personalization of the rider and horse, especially in the crest and targe area, and maybe a bit more options in playing. It would be really cool if more events were added, such as sword fighting ring action, but that might require a whole new game. But those are suggestions, not complaints and would totally recommend this game.
