Joust 2: Survival of the Fittest is an arcade game produced by Williams Electronics in 1986 as the sequel to Joust. Although most Williams Electronics games in the 1980s used horizontal video monitors, vertical monitors like those in Pac-Man and Galaga were very common. Recognizing the need to create games that could be packaged as conversion kits for vertical cabinets, Williams asked Joust designer John Newcomer to create a vertical-screen game. The result was Joust 2. Released during the waning days of the golden age of arcade games, Joust 2 did not achieve nearly the level of success that Joust had. [source:wikipedia]
