Enjoy a sport that has been the pass-time of kings, hunters and warriors for 4000 years!

George Plimpton's Video Falconry was brought to our attention by the Judge John Hodgman podcast. Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Fantastic, you managed to capture perfectly the Colecovision awful controller and gameplay.

Does anyone actually like Chris Hardwick??

He has literally no personality.

Very interesting. I see what you used to execute this, and congrats. But I must say there is a problem; the controls. I mean, they are alright and can easily get used to, but if there were alternate controls or an option to assign them, I think the gameplay would be much more different (as in difficulty). I lost interest in this game very quickly, but only because it's so slow and all. But, it is very unique.

I will first say i like the classic game theme you added to it so you would catch our attention Unfortunately the game isn't fun it's far from it. Adding to many keys makes it harder which i see the point in that but having to move the falcon and press buttons before 3 times around gets hard. It's not a bad game just not amazing. 4/10 2/5.

I see what your going for.

I can see where people who are nostalgic about gaming could like this, but I am not one of those people, and I could go either way. So I'm staying in the undecisive middle.
