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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Controls

1 - Yaw
2 - Pitch
3 - Claw Grab
4 - Beak Grab
5 - Flap
6 - DoubleFlap
7 - Claw

Happy Falconing!

Interesting

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

As weird and unwieldy the controls are...

...the game is great in the sense that once you know how to play and conquer the controls and beat a level, you feel really satisfied. A great little time-waster.

I hate this game!

Great game, Tom.

Addictive, but half-assed, like most games of its time.

Well played, sir...

Okay, it's like this: I think this flash is amazing. But, I don't like this game. BUT! I can't stop playing it. So... advantage: Plimpton?
