Desert Falcon





Desert Falcon 


I am very thankful I had enough money to purchase the Atari Collection 2 on the Evercade system. Desert Falcon is in that collection and it is a very interesting Atari 7800 video game. We play as a bird in Desert Falcon. This game is the strangest shooter I have ever played. The bird hops around the ground until we turn on or collect enough of a certain item and then we have some limited flight capabilities. Not long after we are back on the ground.

Hopefully you caught the live stream where I played Desert Falcon. If you missed it then you can easily check out the video on our website in the videos section. As we get the bandwidth and finances we will get that video on new tech video sites that we work with. All of my reactions were live from the first time I played Desert Falcon for a video. Desert Falcon might be the slowest shooter I have played in my life.

I like the graphical view in Desert Falcon. The graphics in Desert Falcon also look decent. This is a retro video game from the 8-bit era. I enjoyed the up-beat music in Desert Falcon as well. The special effect audio sounds are fun as we shoot things and get destroyed ourselves. Those enemies will ram right into the player taking both of us out. This seems a bit counter-productive to destroy yourself as well in my opinion.

There are two great places to be while playing Desert Falcon. The first place to be is the water. Desert Falcon plays really well when the player is in the water. The second place to be is in the air. Both of those places are great to be in while playing Desert Falcon. That was my personal experience with this shooter. I am not a fan of being on the ground while playing Desert Falcon. It makes the action too slow.

Desert Falcon reminds me of Zaxxon in some ways. I have always like Zaxxon personally. If Desert Falcon had kept the player in the air all of the time or we could easily go up and down with the press of the button I would probably have liked Desert Falcon a bit more. For historical purposes Desert Falcon is an interesting game to play. Now we know someone tried that back in the past.
