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 Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

I do not now why this is still on the frontpage.
The controls are not working at all.
The whole concept itself is really boring.

Im sorry but this is just terrible.
You better make something great to make up for this!

Neutral standpoint

I find the controls difficult to get the hang of. It is also quite a challenge to steer the hawk.

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!

People find this review helpful!


God, this game is ugly.
I can't believe it becomes game of the week.

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
