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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

love the game, controls are just really hard to get used to, believe it or not but a line of numbers is hard to use

I like this game a lot

It give a feeling of authenticity, like I'm actually in the '80, but the only problem I have is the music which is now playing in the elevators of my personal HELL! But that's really not that big of a deal, Tom Flup, this is still an awesome game with awkward controls!

Didn't realize this was an actual port, never the less it still sucks. At least I have a sticker..

The game was enjoyable. I imagine it was twice as addicting on the console. Music was very fitting. Overall pretty nice.
