Pippin Barr has released a browser-based Johann Sebastian Joust tribute, Ludwig Von Beatdown, which is especially enjoyable since Joust has sadly yet to find an easy way into everyone's homes. The rules are the same: jostle your opponent's controller while protecting your own lo-fi PlayStation Move controller, all played out on a keyboard.
Ludwig Von Beatdown allows 0, 1, or 2 players to play. Many conference and game exhibit attendees will know the joy of zero-playing Johann Sebastian Joust, that is - being a spectator. Pippin Barr's Ludwig Von Beatdown is also rather fun to watch, especially if you like 8-bit pastels.
