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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.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

Quite a good game, but the controls are very hard to use. I keep pressing the wrong buttons that that. Still it's quite a good game, and a hotplate !


TomFulp responds:

The whole game was built around a pretend cheat code made up by John Hodgman, so it required making a ton of buttons and working out from there. I agree it's a mess :)

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