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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Pretty hard but fun

I really enjoyed the old style game here the pixel makes it pretty fun, This is a really good functional yet also underrated game with some good stylization you have added all the right amenities making it a terrific game submission with flair and excitement, The controls kind of threw me off with 1 and 3 on the bird game but the game was fun, I thought this was kind of dazzling and something differant but for sure had a nice visual look to it with a sense of fresh look about it some fun gameplay here, Anyways a fun game here very entertaining and nice pixel element


crazy to think only 32 people have ever played the secret level whoa... AND IM IN THE TOP 10 HAHAHAHA yesss

Thanks Qwerty741 Your'e amazing, that's a great find :D Finally i aquired this medals.
Respect to the game is fun lol

had to scour the internet for it since i thought the secret medal combination was locked behind the now privated fake ad, but i finally got a hit!

in the 22nd episode of the Judge John Hodgman podcast, at the 4:30 minute mark, it's mentioned that there exists a cheat combination that unlocks the secret golden eagle level;

while in the main menu, you have to input:
claw (7)
flap (5)
flap (5)
flap (5)
beak grab (4)
claw grab (3)
flap (5)
flap (5)
pitch (2)
yaw (1)
beak grab (4)
double flap (6)

you get a medal for finding the level, and another one for clearing all 3 stages
