Review by Tom Allen
2 Stars out of 4

Midway releases yet another so-called classic compilation with Joust/Defender. Defender is for the birds. Imagine Moon Patrol's great great great grandfather and you get the idea. Joust is the real draw here. A game like this is perfect for portable gaming. The two-player action is some of the best ever. Fun, fun, fun. Don't you love bopping your enemy with your bird butt? Vicious and delicious! The sound effects are simple but very appealing. I'm glad Midway didn't update them needlessly. Both games allow you to alter the number of starting lives, bonus threshold, and difficulty level. For Joust, we put the difficulty on zero, making it a breeze to get to the top of the screen quickly. Less frantic flapping is required. With 99 lives and bonuses at every 1,000 points, you'll get farther into the game than ever before. Can you make it to Wave 99?
