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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

It's okay.

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...

I don't think that story or that that george guy is real. Nor that game isn't real either.
