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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.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

Fantastic pixel art, fantastic coding, lovely music, this game smells like dust and old times, which is lovely for me.

another damn good job, dudes!

despite some problems with the falcon's yaw
the game was, at least for me, really challenging and fun!

besides I gotta agree with Lightining4Breakfast: that Falcon's got one hell of a right claw!

Prepare to be FALCOWNED%u2122!

Video Falconry is an amazing feat in Flash gaming and sets the bar even higher. I'm amazed a game this technologically advanced was even able to be ported over to Flash. George Plimpton would be proud.

This game has FALCOWNED my heart. <3
