Personal review

Possibly the only ostrich jousting game ever made.

One of Williams' three greats, along with Defender and Sinistar. A good example of the better quality games produced in 1982, its sharp sprites and pretty landscapes, as well as excellent gameplay, made it one of the best arcade games of the year.
