Lancer intro and game screens

Lancer is a clone of the arcade hit Joust. It is a little harder, and not quite as close to the arcade as Tom Mix's Buzzard Bait. I prefer the slower flight in this version, it just seems to be more 'realistic' to me. Like the arcade, you can play one or two players, and simultaneously.
A later game based on Lancer (roughly the same game play, and a lot of the same sound routines) was Pegasus and the Phantom Riders, also done by Spectral Associates, but licensed to Tandy, was released two years later, although the author is listed as being different.
