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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Controls

Game wasn't that fun, video made up for it.

The charming little mockumentary video at the game's start screen cracked me up. Chris Hardwick's voicework also caught me by surprise. Web Soup FTW.

Anyway, I'd like to point out that the actual game part only kept my attention for 30 minutes. I would have given it a lower score without the video.

The youngsters mightn't get it...

But this game really captures the simplicity and effectiveness of old-timey games.
