Fancy for a game of Medieval Jousting? Gameloft has the game for you. Rival Knights – “Feel the adrenaline rush of medieval jousting! Crush your rivals and ride your way to glory in the most intuitive, action-packed and visually stunning knight combat game on touch screens!”
There are 3 things to note that will affect the outcome of the battle. First, the Armour of your character which can be upgraded or bought in the shops. Second, is the speed of the horse which is affected by the timely start of the battle and a mini-game during the horse-run. The last factor is the ability to aim at the opponent’s weak-spot. The closer you are to the weak-spot, the higher the damage. However, as the game takes into consideration of the horse galloping and the character bouncing, you need to aim the weapon not directly on the circle indicated but also estimate where the weapon might land to make up for parallax error. Overcome 2 out of the 3 factors and you’ll be considered the winner and crash your opponents onto the floor.
A side note – the graphic of the game is beautiful and and realistic. However, the batteries get heated up quickly. I was playing on the iPhone and it felt too hot to handle after the 3rd battle on-wards.
