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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Use the numpad

To GungaD: Use the numpad, not the numpers on top of the keyboard, you twit!

But I agree, the best part is the backstory, actual game is a bit crap. I got bored after 5 levels.

I see what your going for.

I can see where people who are nostalgic about gaming could like this, but I am not one of those people, and I could go either way. So I'm staying in the undecisive middle.
