Hack of Flicky

A very cool sprite swap.

Reviewed By: FUTURA on 09 Mar 2021

I have a love of Sonic that goes all the way back to the early 90’s. I also have a love of arcade games, and this hack makes a decent attempt at marrying the two.

It is Flicky, but the Flicky sprites are changed to Sonic. Very cool!

However, I feel this could have so many more improvements to make it a truly new and unforgettable experience. I will list some suggestions below:

  • Adding a new title screen logo to include Sonic’s name, to have it say “SONIC in FLICKY”.
  • Replacing the music to include Sonic music instead of Flicky music.
  • Replacing the “enemy” sprites to Badniks/enemies from the Sonic games.
  • Possibly add Sonic sound effects.

I like the idea of this hack, it’s a lot like Sonic 3D Blast, only 2D and in a house. There is definitely potential here to make a great hack of Flicky.
