Medievalists will be pleased to learn that a new iOS app, Joust Legend, provides iDevice users with the chance to try their hand at the popular medieval sport. Developed by Rebellion Games, the $1.99 universal application lets gamers immerse themselves within "the speed, adrenaline, and lance-shattering intensity of jousting." As the developer explains: "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!" Features of the game include:
Furthermore, Joust Legend also features support for Game Center and iCloud-powered saves, both of which will be appreciated by players. From what we understand, the application is compatible with the iPhone 4 and above, the iPad 2 and above, and the fifth-generation iPod touch, and it requires iOS 4.3 or later. As mentioned, Joust Legend can be downloaded in the App Store for $1.99, and the application is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
