What Gamespot Users have to say about Flicky

  • Review Score:5.5

    Fairly good game, not what I'd spend my time playing for hours on end.

    As we all know, flicky is an arcade game released in 1984. The game was quite a success in arcades worldwide, and was ported to the Genesis in 1991. Basically what you do is collect your little chicks and take them to th... Read Full Review

    Why lie? This game is one of the best Sega Genesis games of all time!

    Basically, you control a little blue bird and rescue yellow chicks and then bring them to the door. The most difficult part is to avoid the cats and the iguanas that try to pounce on Flicky and separate the chicks. This ... Read Full Review

    Flicky is a simple game, but its got enough charm for you to kill some time in

    Flicky is one of Sega's first and possibly one of their most forgotten classic from the arcade. This was back then when any simple idea could be turned into a video game, like a bird rescuing other birds from a cat. I ... Read Full Review

    An OK game

    This game is probably OK. Not the best GEN game out there but OK because it might be too hard. When I first played this game, I couldn't beat the first level and then I became coruis about it. It may need a little fixing... Read Full Review

    Flicky is an incredible platformer, and has charm for itself.

    Just to let you know, flickies are characters from Sonic the hedgehog. But, before sonic, they were in their own game, simply called Flicky. Flicky is an incredible platformer, and has charm for itself. Game-play: 9/1... Read Full Review

    Average user score 6.7? Flicky is a really addictive arcade port. Cute and somewhat charming.

    Flicky was initially an arcade game made by Sega; and this is a port for the Mega Drive / Genesis. Okay, as an arcade game, this review wont take long. You take control of a blue bird, Flicky, and run around rooms tr... Read Full Review
