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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

I will first say i like the classic game theme you added to it so you would catch our attention Unfortunately the game isn't fun it's far from it. Adding to many keys makes it harder which i see the point in that but having to move the falcon and press buttons before 3 times around gets hard. It's not a bad game just not amazing. 4/10 2/5.

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.

sweet jesus

this has to be one of the worst games ive ever played... better everything i dont find the point in the game itself. absolutely terrible

I dunno

I do see the appeal of this game, though I don't really feel it. Probably not my type of game, so I won't rate it!

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
