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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Great Fulp! :D

Wow another original game by Tom, nice work. I enjoyed playing it, the medals were a nice reward to a fun game, but a little generous at times. To be honest, I don't like that style of graphics, but I'd rather not penalize the game for such a thing like that. The music fits in very well, and the game is great overall.

It's pretty good. Very much like when I was a kid. fun and frustrating.

Controls are awkward

I usually like games like this, but the controls are too awkward, and there's too many of them to remember and get wrong. I was frustrated by the third training exercise.

...And to those comment on the game not working, try using Firefox...
