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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

This game is great!

I'm kinda suprised at how people say the controls are terrible,all you had to do was hit the " Num Lock" button and play on the Number pad to emulate colecovision controls. That made the game much more easy to play. Game play is tight and a little frustrating. Bonus levels were... sorta fun. I just felt that quick time events are done too much, but whatever, just a nit pick. Still, it's great arcade action for the wohle family.
