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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Top Notch!

It reminds me of something you could play on the NES - The graphics, the music, and the sprites. Everything. I love the little minigames in between capturing prey. :)

Brings back horrible memories

My dad had a ColecoVision when they first came out; sadly I wasn't born at the time but he kept in the loft for when I was ready.

I think I was about 5 when he released the beast from the attic and he even had this God forsaken game. I mean, this amazing port is unbearable to play now, but imagine a kid playing it back then on an actual ColecoVision... there were many MANY tantrums.

I played this ported version with bated breath, knowing full well what it use to do to me. This time, however, I have an adult brain and larger hands in order to press the impossible key combinations. Was it any easier? No. In fact, fuck no. This game still remains one of the most infuriating I have ever played and will put me in a early grave.

This time, dammit, I at least managed to complete the main story. Although I still fail miserably at the mini-games.

I wish this game never existed, but am glad that it has found a home for everyone to "enjoy".
