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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Happy Falconing!


Definately Unique

I have to say this is the most unique game I've ever played and so once I don't mind the graphics (I dislike pixel). But there could be things to fix. Such as a pause button, restart button and mute. Also, how about yawing the other way? Or key customization? 1-7 keys aren't very comfortable and I would like to use my thumb (it'll also be easier for the fireworks part). By far, the best keys would be a,s,d,f,space,j,k,l,;.

It's not a bad game...

But I'm already bored after the first level.
As far as going through the painstaking process involved with making it, congratulations. Great work Emulating this you guys...

But video Falconry just isn't for me.

I don't think that story or that that george guy is real. Nor that game isn't real either.

Good, but..

I think you should be able to repeat the bonus levells to get the medals :))
