The point of this game is to find your Falcon Costume (by looking around) then finding and killing the badguy.

NOTE: Yeah, I know this game sucks. The point wasn't to make a good game. The point was to replicate a DOS game that was done for the point of finishing a game.

When I was first learning to prgram, I would start a game with plans of making it huge. Then I'd get bored with the game, or learn a new way of doing things, rendering my current project uninteresting. I'd start a new "big" game all over again. And again. And Again.

After getting frustrated with that cycle I decided to start a game and finish it as soon as possible. In order to combat bordom, I'd have to be able to make it quickly. In order to make it quickly, I'd have to make it small and simple. The first Mr. Falcon game was made for that purpose.

Mr. Falcon is a DOS game. People don't use DOS anymore. Many of the original players went on to use Linux and/or Macs. In order to play, they'd have to use an emulator. As Windows progressed, it lost the ability to play DOS games the way they were meant to be played. Now, if you want to play DOS games, you pretty much need a DOS emulator, even in Windows.

This made it hard to introduce the game to new people. So I rewrote it in Javascript so I could introduce it to a new audience. It also helped me take my Javascript to the next level.

This game should replicate the original game very closely, except for some minor look'n'feel attributes, and some bugs have been fixed. (No doubt new bugs have been introduced too!)

  1. Find the Falcon Costume and change into it.
    1. Starting from the start screen go one screen to the right.
    2. Close to the left part of that screen hit the Down Arrow key until you're in the Falcon Cave. You may have to move around a bit to find the "secret door."
    3. Take note of where you land in the Falcon cave. You'll need to return to that spot to return to the main surface after you find the Falcon costume.
    4. Move one screen to the Left, and hit "Enter." This will tell you that you've found the costume and automatically change into it.
  2. Find the bad guy and shoot him.
    1. Return to the place where you entered the falcon cave.
    2. Press the Up Arrow key to return to the surface.
    3. Return to the screen in which you started. Ie: One screen to the left.
    4. You should see the bad guy. Hit the space bar to shoot him.
