Flicky is an arcade game made by Sega. First released in arcades in 1984, Flicky was also released at the time for the SG-1000, and then ported to the MSX and Japanese computers Sharp X1, Fujitsu FM-7 and NEC PC-8801. It was later ported to the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis in 1991. Flicky was designed by Yoji Ishii, who was with Sonic Team until August 1999, when he formed Artoon, his own company.
Flicky has since been re-released as part of the Sonic Mega Collection for the Nintendo GameCube, Sonic Mega Collection Plus for the Xbox and PlayStation 2 where it was an unlockable extra game, and in Sega Genesis Collection (Sega Mega Drive Collection outside of North America) for the PlayStation 2 and PSP. It has also been released for mobile phones.
Flicky next appears in Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection outside of North America).
