    1. I loved Joust. It was the first game that I felt had a predictable “feel” to the gravity. I could just bounce around getting kills with only an occasional flap on certain levels. Like a ninja…. on an ostrich.

  1. Those are great! His other stuff is cool too. I like the Mars tourism poster. “Get your ass to Mars”.

    Joust on the VIC20 was weird, you controlled an egg instead of a flapping steed. Simpler I guess.

  2. I love everything about the Donkey Kong one… except the unforgivable use of Arial. Really not an appropriate font for any sort of commercial design, especially a period piece that’s supposed to predate Arial’s 1982 origin.

  3. Awesome! This is great. Artsprojekt has such an amazing collection of talented artists. Keep it up!
