A female blue jay, named Flicky, must collect her chicks and lead them safely back to their nest, while they are chased by two cats. The cats make her chicks wandering off and try to eat her! Each level offers about a dozen objects like watering cans, hammers, and cups, to throw at and knock out the cats. The next level starts when all chicks are returned home safely.

This game is often on Sonic the Hedgehog collections due to the character looking almost 100% like the Sonic character Flicky. However, since this game came first, it seems Sonic's Flicky was based on it.

Original Name

According to the game ROM, the game was originally called Busty, was later changed to Flippy and then finally - due to an pre-existing US Trademark - became Flicky.
