Hudson Hawk is a platform game developed by Special FX Ltd. for the Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum based on the film of the same name. It was released in 1991 and published by Ocean Software. Sony Imagesoft released it in the US for the Game Boy and NES. In Spain it was published as El Gran Halcon, the Spanish title for the film. An SNES version was in development, but was cancelled when the film flopped.


The player assumes the role of Hudson Hawk, a cat burglar. He is sent on a mission to steal three Da Vinci artifacts. Walking through various levels in this platform game, the player must avoid sounding alarms. In addition, security guards and dogs show up to hamper the mission. Hudson Hawk can pacify the enemies by punching them or throwing a "ball" at them.

Enemies include a rhinoceros stampeding in the Vatican library and a kangaroo.
