Today – Oct. 23, 2020 – in Bath (England) Jetboard Joust, a fusion of classic arcade shoot-’em-ups and modern rogue-likes, from publisher Freedom! Games and developer BitBull, takes off on Steam for PC and Mac today ahead of its Nintendo Switch release in 2021.

In this long-overdue sequel to BitBulls 1989 release Skateboard Joust for the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, and Amstrad CPC microcomputers, take to the skies to defend from waves of invaders as you balance maintaining altitude, dodging incoming fire, and pursuing your enemies. Harness the power of the jetboard by utilizing it as a ballistic missile and launching the deck into hostile squadrons to devastate the enemy armada and destroy everything caught in the crossfire. As you advance through the procedural and branching campaign, collect coins and get powerful upgrades, guns, armour and jet board modifications. Traverse multiple environments for temples filled with untold spoils and power up before returning to the fight. Surprises and unrelenting foes await, including massive, multi-stage boss guardians and super-powered mutants created from abductees.

“In the decades between the release of Skateboard Joust and Jetboard Joust, the landscape of games has evolved so much,” said James Closs, founder, BitBull. “Jetboard Joust builds upon the foundations of what made early video games so enjoyable with a lifetime of experience and contemporary innovations to create an arcade classic for the modern age out today on Steam.”
