Flicky © 1984 Sega Enterprises, Limited.

A platform game in which Flicky must collect her lost chicks and lead them home, represented as a door marked 'Flicky'. Players must watch out for the cats which emerge from cat-flaps and proceed to roam the levels. If Flicky has any direct contact with a cat, the player will lose a life; any chicks that are touched by a cat will be separated from Flicky and must again be retrieved. The platforms of each level are littered with objects - such as plant pots, hammers and trumpets - that can be picked up and thrown at the cats to knock them out.

Flicky was released in September 1984.

The game changed name two times during its development: it was originally called 'Busty', then 'Flipp' and finally 'Flicky'.

The Flicky character also appears in the game, "Bloxeed". A Sega coin-op version of this game is also known to exist for the Sega System 16 hardware. The birds that are rescued by Sonic in his many Sega Magadrive platform outings are 'Flickies', and are identical in appearance to the original Flicky. Also, Flicky tags along with Sonic in the Sega Mega Drive/Saturn game, "Sonic 3D Flicky's Island"; more widely known as "Sonic 3D Blast".

Flicky made cameo appearances in many Sega games in the late 80's, including "TeddyBoy Blues", "SDI", "Flash Point", and "Super Monaco GP".

Jonathan Long holds the official record for this game with 4,548,540 points.
