Help wanted on JOUST 2

Breezed through the other games but cannot beat the first 4 levels on this monstrosity!! I can get to wave 3 with all my lives intact but i can't find a good strategy to progress, can anyone help? The controls are awful far too twitchy and I have the touch of a baby elephant! Please any tips so I can sell this "classic" collection and get something else!!

Joust 2 is fucking horrible. Totally feel your pain mate. This is how I did it, after what felt like around 60-70 attempts. It took a couple of hours for me to finally get it, and I think I got lucky more than anything else.

Get to level 3 with all lives intact. Absolutely essential. Also don't bother going for the bonus square should you get from a large egg on levels 3 and above - too risky.

Level 3 - You start in the middle of the screen. I flew upwards and hovered under the platform above on the far left edge and waited for that red thing to appear and move to under me. Then drop on it and kill that fucker off first. After that there isn't much strategy other than try and stay high up under the ledges on the middle and bottom platforms and drop down on them when you can. I used the Pegasus button sometimes to drop on them. I never bothered with the very top of the level. You get killed too easy up there.

Level 4 - Move to the right and park yourself midway under the ledge above. Transform into Pegasus and try and waste as many red birds as you can there by hopping up a bit. The Pegasus form is shit at jumping. I never really lasted that long but if you can take out maybe 4 or 5 that's good. Now you want to get to the top ledge if you can. After getting killed I would often spawn up there or very close to it. Get to the top ledge and drop down the gap as Pegasus and fly back up again over and over when enemies appear below.

Its hard but with persistance it can be done.

For level 3 I started at the bottom I took out the regular birds & got eggs before they went into the fire and flew up to second tier to kill red machine.

yeah dude level 3 is super simple (i tryed the all the way top method) and it DID not work. how ever if you go to the lowest platform and then fly straight up in the center right at the start.. basically mashing fly as fast as possible they seem to fly right into you and its super easy that way.

level 4 100% is done by turning into the pegasus and going on the bottom at the start of the level and just camp the bottom right with him. i got it on the second time i played the level.

also sometimes the bonus thing gives you an extra life so i say try and get them as much as possible. unlike other people who say they are a waste.
