  1. Hi on February 11th, 2014

    Pretty fun, also tough. Feels like a mix of Super Hexagon and Helicopter.

  2. Jacob Albano on February 11th, 2014

    That music is so delicious.

  3. Holden on February 12th, 2014

    Awesome stuff!

  4. blackwhite on February 12th, 2014

    so it’s like Flappy Hexagon… haha

  5. David on February 12th, 2014

    This is great. I’ve seen a couple of Flappy Bird tributes which seem to have really unnatural motion, which (for me) takes away all of the predictability and feeling of fairness. I love the dive, and the effect when you get a new high score.
    The music’s fantastic too, hadn’t heard of kozilek before.

  6. Unept on February 12th, 2014

    “I hate this game!” said my wife when I showed it to her. Then she played it for 10 more minute.

    Do you “unlock” new obstacle sections, or is it just my imagination?

    Love it.

  7. Virocop on February 12th, 2014

    Damn, pretty hard but very funny game! :D Thumbs up for great music!

  8. Tim on February 12th, 2014

    I want this on my iPad!!! So much better than the original. :>

  9. BummsGeordy on February 12th, 2014

    iPhone-Version please! and where can I buy this song? :)

  10. MSHB on February 12th, 2014

    awesooooooooooome Mr.Cavanagh

    i love this more than Flappy Bird :D

  11. David J on February 12th, 2014

    Flappy Bird High Score: 90
    Maverick Bird High Score: 32

  12. Jabberwok on February 12th, 2014

    You seem to be slowly honing and distilling your sadism down to its essence.

  13. Moshtly on February 12th, 2014

    This is great, would love an Android version :D The music is also fantastic.

  14. Shifu on February 12th, 2014

    ANDROID/IOS VERSION, PLEASE
    10/10

  15. t-bone on February 12th, 2014

    The music is an absolute eargasm. Love it!

  16. Person on February 12th, 2014

    Is it sad I was better at this game than Flappy Bird? lol

  17. Mario Bross on February 12th, 2014

    Damn, too hard!

  18. MUSIC on February 12th, 2014

    NEED A LINK TO THE MUSIC . RIGHT FUCKIN NOW

  19. Lauro Abreu on February 12th, 2014

    Dude, this game is just AWESOME!
    The music, the gameplay, the colors and stuff, just AWESOME!
    I really think you should make this for Android and iOS (and maybe even steam!) I would play this in my phone for sure ;)

  20. DGH on February 12th, 2014

    Music can be bought here:

    http://kozilek.bandcamp.com/album/pluto-ep

  21. Cosmin L. Neagu on February 12th, 2014

    1 for Android :)

    Also I think there should be more space from start to the first obstacle to get a chance to calibrate your brain to the movements.

  22. Player on February 12th, 2014

    Very good gameplay. However, the lose flashes and background movement are VERY annoying. I feel like I’m hurting my eyes. Can you add an option to turn them off?

  23. Man on February 12th, 2014

    Yeah! This is really good. I never played the Flappy Bird, but I really like this.

  24. Ravor on February 12th, 2014

    I realy like you version, do you put on steam to sell or on kongregate?

  25. SirBryghtside on February 12th, 2014

    “YES! I finally hit 50! I can finally get on with the rest of my li-”

    *next medal at 100*

    Another home run, Terry :) also this weird optical illusion thingy happens when I stop playing where everything starts drifting off to the right – I kind of like it! Currently at 56, will keep pushing onwards though!

  26. Santiago on February 12th, 2014

    Please make an android/ios app
    just like hexagon pc/mobile game :)

  27. Nicole Aptekar on February 12th, 2014

    Fucking incredible. If you make ios/steam/etc, I will buy happily. So good.

  28. Anonymous on February 12th, 2014

    That music is the definition of crispy

  29. Rasmus Q on February 12th, 2014

    I’ve read that it is gonna come out for Google Play and App Store (But maybe it was just for fun?). Great Gameplay, Great Music, Great Everything! I love Flappy Bird and i love Super Hexagon! With these two mixed up, it cant get better!

  30. Michael H on February 12th, 2014

    Please make an iPhone version. I’ll pay for it happily. Please…

  31. Thor on February 12th, 2014

    Fantastic game, I love it. Good work as always!

  32. Rob K on February 12th, 2014

    Ok, so, listen, flappy birds was ok. It was certainly addictive but I couldn’t call it a good game. THIS GAME IS AMAZING. Please please flesh this out more and bring it to iOS and Android (pref Android first!). I would buy this as it stands now, but would love to see multiple styles similar to the different difficulty levels of super hexagon (with more music too) (super hexagon by the way was in my top 5 games of last year, probably top 2)

  33. MemPhiZ ZX on February 12th, 2014

    Steam version plz.

  34. cbowns on February 12th, 2014

    This music is fantastic. Thanks for linking to it! (http://kozilek.bandcamp.com/album/pluto-ep if you missed it above)

  35. Nicholas on February 13th, 2014

    this is fantastic. It oozes your style. Do you happen to have any intention of porting it over to mobile devices?

  36. Kinsale on February 13th, 2014

    This was a great game. I hope that no one simply dismisses it as a flappy bird clone, because it also has a lot of uniqueness. Kozilek’s music was also amazing. I really think that this would do well on mobile. Anyways, great job.

  37. Navarr on February 13th, 2014

    I’m really saddened it only works on your website. I downloaded the SWF so that I could throw it into Flash Projector and use FRAPS to record an LP of it but no dice. Super disappointing.

  38. Nice on February 13th, 2014

    This version is far better than the original. You got the gameplay and develop it much better.
    Very nice.

  39. Erick Rodas on February 13th, 2014

    Just amazing like always. Even though i liked the idea of flappy bird i criticized it for lacking good music. Yet here you make an amazing game that is so much better because of it’s style and incredible music. Very well done you have impressed us all yet again.

  40. Future-starter on February 13th, 2014

    I didn’t like the original flappy bird, but I would buy this if you put it on the app store! Awesome!

  41. casey on February 13th, 2014

    this was fun…flappy birds was not. like everyone here is saying you can make money on this. and nayas quest for that matter why no retail versions? Thank you very much for everything you make

  42. Nicolay Doytchev on February 13th, 2014

    I will pay for a Android/Ubuntu version. Please make it! :>

  43. Suppir on February 13th, 2014

    Terry, can you port this game for Windows Phone and Android? I’ll buy both!

  44. Olpus Bonzo on February 13th, 2014

    I LOVE THIS GAME.

    Also…

    I HATE THIS GAME!!!

    This game is a nice interpretation of Flappy Bird, I really like it more the original game. The game made by Dong had a nice idea in the “endurance platform” field, but the gameplay wasn’t so well balanced. Maverick Bird instead is awesome, in gameplay, aesthetics, music and overall feeling.

  45. Lulu on February 13th, 2014

    Terry, level with us.

    Are you a wizard?

    I said it with Hexagon and I’ll say it again: Please put this on iOs, I would love to pay you for this.

    Well, time to send this to all my friends and then lose the rest of my afternoon.

  46. Anonymous on February 13th, 2014

    Great Game!
    Please make an Android version!

  47. MercuryVapour on February 13th, 2014

    This is awesome. I think I’ve played it for about an hour. Beat 17 if you dare!

  48. Adam on February 14th, 2014

    High score: 109

    I had a bit of compiling to do this afternoon. (See the link in my name for proof!)

    It seems that Black [100] is the highest rank. So I think this is about as close to “beating the game” as I need to be. It will still be fun to play, but much like Flappy Bird it seems the game doesn’t get faster or more difficult as you go on. There are more obstacles, but once you’ve seen them all and worked out how to get past them it’s just a matter of focus and endurance.

  49. FIQ on February 14th, 2014

    While certainly more fun than Flappy Bird (which I tbh found pretty boring), and a decent game, i’m not sure if I would pay for it (other than solely for supporting your works in general) unlike VVVVVV/Super Hexagon. I guess your plan wasn’t to make this into a retail title anyway though.

    Good work regardless, as always. Was a fun half-hour timekiller. :)

  50. exinesi on February 14th, 2014

    Fantastic game. I managed to score 13. lolz Great music. The track is called “Vietnam” from Kozilek.

  51. Olpus Bonzo on February 14th, 2014

    I’ve reached 21 obstacles, but one of my colleagues, Commander Palermo, beaten me with 28 obstacles suprassed… I’m angered.

    I think we need a leaderboard for this game.

  52. Tazkov on February 14th, 2014

    Def need to keep working on this!

    Would love to hear more beats, and perhaps higher framerate on the obstacles/walls? Kind of makes my eyes hurt how they stutter

  53. Einar on February 15th, 2014

    Would love a android version.

  54. someoneLP on February 15th, 2014

    If you make a mobile version i’ll give you my babies.

  55. Virus on February 15th, 2014

    Hey terry! Some guy on KA made a version of you Super hexagon game.
    https://www.khanacademy.org/cs/super-hexagon/5716239179579392

  56. terry pls on February 15th, 2014

    android version when?

  57. Hamvvar on February 16th, 2014

    Terry! http://terrycavanaghgames.com/maverickbird/ this link seems to be broken! (?)

  58. yep on February 16th, 2014

    This link seems to be broken…

  59. Elen on February 16th, 2014

    Yup, it’s been down for a few hours now for me. Perhaps you could host a link elsewhere as well Terry?

  60. mmm on February 17th, 2014
  61. sitelock on February 17th, 2014

    Terry says that it is a freeware, but is sitelocked. It’s okay, but it’s really a good game. If you do not put on Kongregate, you lost money on advertising. The Flappy Bird not be happier. :)

  62. Nobody on February 17th, 2014

    I love this game, much better that the original.

  63. Rattulator on February 17th, 2014

    Far better than original, would be more than willing to pay a whole 59p for this on ipod or android!

  64. Steven on February 17th, 2014

    I concur regarding the mobile version. Would pay a good chunk of change for a great game to support a great developer.

  65. Bob on February 19th, 2014

    Flappy Bird-259

    Maverick Bird-13

  66. Man on February 19th, 2014

    Flapyy Bird killer.

  67. Zack Livestone on February 19th, 2014

    I’d be curious to know my average score as well as top score, and possibly see leaderboards of some sort (my best so far is 44), but to be honest this game is essentially flawless. I especially love the top score break effect.

  68. Jim on February 21st, 2014
  69. DanteZack93 on February 23rd, 2014

    You sir, are the best :D

  70. Feredico on February 23rd, 2014

    Man, please, Android app! D:

  71. Liviu S on February 24th, 2014

    I like games because of games like this one :) It is amazing. It is more complex the flappy bird. I liked how you changed the angles of the platforms, it makes the player react different every times. Plus their are more different types of platforms to interact with and to learn from. Until now i like the most the “sinusoidal” one. It feels very fluid. Plus the colors and the art style are very appropriete to this kind of game. Well the style it is much like VVVVVV and Superhexagon. :) Again, a very beautiful game. I’d like to make something like this too someday … :) I don’t like the fact that you should repeat a lot to see the entire game, but I guess this is the point of a game, learning by mistakes and exploration until the moment you learned everything and you are good :)

  72. Yannoch on February 25th, 2014

    Great game , addicting , my boss hates you :p

  73. milk11 on February 25th, 2014

    op game, android version pls :D

  74. plakrast on February 26th, 2014

    awesome game, the only thing else that I’d want from it is a high-scores table for everyone. It might get hacked, but it’d improve the drive to play more. Right now, I’m at 79; I’ll continue to 100!

  75. Blake on February 27th, 2014

    Well done, I’ve really been enjoying this. It would be very cool to have an offline version, too!

  76. Anoname on March 10th, 2014

    You shouldn’t thanks Dong, he’s just an idea stealer… The original idea of “Flappy Bird” came from Kek. He made a game in 2011 called “Piou Piou against the cactuses”. It has the same gameplay, and the same yellow bird with big red lips… Isn’t it strange ?

    I’m a huge fan of Maverick bird and just about all of your games. But this isn’t working right now! If you’re not too busy, just keep in mind I would gladly pay for a version of this on Google Play. Keep up the good work!!! :)

  97. Ville on May 22nd, 2014

    Oh thank god you took it down…. I replaced uncountable hours of productive work for a 238 high score.

  98. Rub3z on May 30th, 2014

    Rejoice and kiss all your productive hours of work goodbye, Maverick Bird is up again!!! Woohoo! Thanks, Terry! :D
