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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Neutral standpoint

I find the controls difficult to get the hang of. It is also quite a challenge to steer the hawk.

Top Notch!

It reminds me of something you could play on the NES - The graphics, the music, and the sprites. Everything. I love the little minigames in between capturing prey. :)
