I didn't realize there were so many ports of this game!

I have often thought this must be one of the most converted games ever. If the Jag version had come out it would have had a port on every single Atari system.

That would have been cool!  There was also work being done on a Vectrex version but I think it has been stopped.

ZX Spectrum (Winged Warlords) looks like a good variation game.

Here is that famous 11 second clip of Dactyl Joust (previously known as Joust 2000) on the Jaguar:



Also skip to 10:36 and you will see an early version of Starcat's homebrew effort:

Another very impressive Joust clone is Buzzard Bait for the Dragon 32 and Tandy CoCo

I think the last ones in the video were not "ports" but the original ROM running in emulation.  That's what the "William's Greatest Hits" is.

yeah - I had forgot about the 16bit emu packs - I have the snes version and the real thing doesn't have the sound issues that are present in the video here.

The 7800 version is a very good effort.

I also have the Williams pack for Saturn and Dreamcast for some reason!!

I was most impressed by the 7800 and GameBoy Color ones.

GBC Joust (along with defender as they are both part of the arcade Hits release), scored 4/5 in Arcade, Robin Alway describing Joust as '...a work of absolute genius'.

Updated the video in the first post with a new edit. The original video had been removed from YouTube.

I think once they update the videos, they remove the old ones.  Or, at least, that appears to be the case with this video.
