Description from the packaging.

An exciting medieval battle from the arcade classic!

Climb into your suit of armor and saddle up your ostrich- that's right, your ostrich! You're about to enter the world of Joust where Gladiators ride gigantic buzzards into combat and friends can turn into foes at a moment's notice. Fly your favorite fowl into battle against the infamous Buzzard Riders- and knock your opponents off their birds before they turn you into buzzard bait!

Joust has all the features of the challenging arcade classic, including a two-player game that lets you and a friend work as a team or joust against each other on the aerial battlefield.
