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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.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

2 - Pitch
3 - Claw Grab
4 - Beak Grab
5 - Flap

7 - Claw

Happy Falconing!

I can't believe some people think this was actually a real game in 1984! I guess this is sort of an inside joke for people following Newgrounds on Facebook/Youtube.

The controls were very difficult; 7 buttons, that's the most buttons I have ever used on a Flash game! It was an intersting challenge, and hard to get all the points (which I didn't).
