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 1 wasn't very good. So I wrote Mr. Falcon 2, which was a little better. Slightly better graphics, slightly more complicated story (your Falcon costume is in 2 rooms, not just 1), and the main character can turn around.

The Mr. Falcon gamess are DOS games. People don't use DOS anymore. 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 games to new people. So I rewrote them 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, the inside of your house, enter the door on the right side of the screen by standing directly in front of it and pressing the Up arrow key.
    2. Go one screen to the left and press Enter. You have found half of your costum.
    3. Go two screens to the left and press Enter. You have found the rest of your costume.
  2. Steal the gun from the cop.
    1. Move one screen to the right and go through the door in the centre of the screen. This is a secret passage to the above world.
    2. Go two screens to the left and enter the Coffee and Donuts shop.
    3. Stand by the police officer and press 's'.
  3. Find the bad guy and shoot him.
    1. Exit the restaurant and go from screen to screen until the square-headed bad guy randomly appears.
    2. Face him and press the space bar to shoot him.
