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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.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

The youngsters mightn't get it...

But this game really captures the simplicity and effectiveness of old-timey games.

Well, this is indeed interesting

A game made by a company with the same name let alone logo! Talk about the most bizzarest (if that is even a word) of coincidences.

As for the game itself It's somewhat entertaining the controls are clunky but that's what adds to the challenge of this EXTREME retro game.

Also the history lesson was nice <3

Interesting...

It's fun. The history lesson is really informative and the game itself is fun to play. Controls get confusing but non the less it's a good game.

A classic game, but it takes a while to get used to, I must say.
