Skirmish is a clone of the 1982 arcade game Joust.
You control a knight who rides a flying ostrich around rocky platforms which float above a flat island. The ostrich may fly upwards, hover, or slowly descend, depending on the rate at which you flap its wings. You have to defeat successive waves of enemy knights by colliding with them.
