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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

George Plimpton is marvelous!

I didn't know all this about George Plimpton, thank you for your beautiful history lesson and for going to all the trouble to find the game. Thank you for simplifying the control system somewhat from the original too.

Definately Unique

I have to say this is the most unique game I've ever played and so once I don't mind the graphics (I dislike pixel). But there could be things to fix. Such as a pause button, restart button and mute. Also, how about yawing the other way? Or key customization? 1-7 keys aren't very comfortable and I would like to use my thumb (it'll also be easier for the fireworks part). By far, the best keys would be a,s,d,f,space,j,k,l,;.
