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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

odd

the game is fine, and the backstory is one of those things that, even if it is fake or something, it makes you go "WOW, DID THAT ACTUALLY HAPPEN!?" and makes you investigate. Awesome

good game

the only problem for me is that occasionally there's a bit of input lag, apart from that, solid

Crap Game

The actual game is crap, but seeing as it's both deliberate and hilarious I can't give this a low rating.

The coleco was under rated

people should have treated it better, because in retrospect it was about as powerful as the NES, and it was made by Americans, something you don't see every day, and on top of that they at least tried to do what Nintendo actually did, so all in all nice game, not perfect, like most colecovision games, but sure as hell fun to play, well thank you very much for making this i had fun playing it , cheers!
