OK, this isn’t totally autobiographical, because while I did pay eighty – count ’em – dollars to buy Flicky for the MegaDrive, it was something I was happy about doing afterwards because the game is really great.
It’s a really simple game – like, you could release it on iOS now for a buck and people would still complain it’s a bit bare for the money – but it’s a really nice game. You’re a little blue bird and you have to collect little yellow birds who follow you around as you lead them to the exit without touching one of the cats who are running around the level. That’s it! It just feels really nice to play and I can’t recommend it enough.
Oh fun fact the bird you control is also one of the birds that comes out of defeated enemies in the Sonic The Hedgehog games, that was neat.
