balancelot jousting xbox

Every once in a while, something that’s silly yet equally unique, pops onto our radar and today’s one of those occasions. But what’s arrived to arouse our attention this time? Well, here’s a medieval unicycle adventure now available, courtesy of Ratalaika Games – of course it’s those who recently brought us Freddy Spaghetti. Prepare for a chuckle as Balancelot tentatively jousts its way onto Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

A collaboration between Ratalaika Games, AnvilBird Interactive and Jestercraft, Balancelot is a satirical medieval adventure. It’s a fantasy tale of a poor squire who cannot even afford a horse in order to fulfil his jousting dreams. What he does however, is a unicycle, and so that will simply have to do as his epic journey begins. Through a real balancing act, this lowly chap must reach the kingdom’s jousting tournament and win it using a darn unicycle.

There are over 20 tricky levels to overcome as you attempt to show off your extreme unicycle riding skills. Navigating the medieval-themed environments is just one aspect looking to knock you off balance, with mythical monsters ready to trifle your efforts as well. Don’t worry if the toughness is a little maddening because you’re sure to find humour from not only the rather twisted and witty story, but also the comedic physics of the actual gameplay too. 

If you look forward to crushing enemies and reigning supreme on your one-wheeler in Balancelot, then swiftly make your way to the Xbox Store and pay up £7.99 for the privilege to do so. It’s also available on the PS Store and in a couple of days, on 22nd January, the Nintendo eShop. Be quick and you may be able to purchase Balancelot for a post-launch discounted price of £6.39!
