A Flappy Bird fan game.
Thanks for the inspiration, Dong. Looking forward to your next game when things settle down!
Pretty fun, also tough. Feels like a mix of Super Hexagon and Helicopter.
That music is so delicious.
so it’s like Flappy Hexagon… haha
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.
“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?
Damn, pretty hard but very funny game! 😀 Thumbs up for great music!
I want this on my iPad!!! So much better than the original. :>
iPhone-Version please! and where can I buy this song?
i love this more than Flappy Bird 😀
Flappy Bird High Score: 90
Maverick Bird High Score: 32
You seem to be slowly honing and distilling your sadism down to its essence.
This is great, would love an Android version 😀 The music is also fantastic.
ANDROID/IOS VERSION, PLEASE
The music is an absolute eargasm. Love it!
Is it sad I was better at this game than Flappy Bird? lol
Damn, too hard!
NEED A LINK TO THE MUSIC . RIGHT FUCKIN NOW
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 😉
Music can be bought here:
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.
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?
Yeah! This is really good. I never played the Flappy Bird, but I really like this.
I realy like you version, do you put on steam to sell or on kongregate?
“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!
Please make an android/ios app
just like hexagon pc/mobile game
Fucking incredible. If you make ios/steam/etc, I will buy happily. So good.
That music is the definition of crispy
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!
Please make an iPhone version. I’ll pay for it happily. Please…
Fantastic game, I love it. Good work as always!
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)
Steam version plz.
This music is fantastic. Thanks for linking to it! (http://kozilek.bandcamp.com/album/pluto-ep if you missed it above)
this is fantastic. It oozes your style. Do you happen to have any intention of porting it over to mobile devices?
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.
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.
This version is far better than the original. You got the gameplay and develop it much better.
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.
I didn’t like the original flappy bird, but I would buy this if you put it on the app store! Awesome!
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
I will pay for a Android/Ubuntu version. Please make it! :>
Terry, can you port this game for Windows Phone and Android? I’ll buy both!
I LOVE THIS GAME.
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.
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.
Please make an Android version!
This is awesome. I think I’ve played it for about an hour. Beat 17 if you dare!
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  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.
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.
Fantastic game. I managed to score 13. lolz Great music. The track is called “Vietnam” from Kozilek.
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.
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
Would love a android version.
If you make a mobile version i’ll give you my babies.
Hey terry! Some guy on KA made a version of you Super hexagon game.
android version when?
Terry! http://terrycavanaghgames.com/maverickbird/ this link seems to be broken! (?)
This link seems to be broken…
Yup, it’s been down for a few hours now for me. Perhaps you could host a link elsewhere as well Terry?
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.
I love this game, much better that the original.
Far better than original, would be more than willing to pay a whole 59p for this on ipod or android!
I concur regarding the mobile version. Would pay a good chunk of change for a great game to support a great developer.
Flapyy Bird killer.
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.
You sir, are the best 😀
Man, please, Android app! D:
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
Great game , addicting , my boss hates you :p
op game, android version pls 😀
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!
Well done, I’ve really been enjoying this. It would be very cool to have an offline version, too!
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 ?
10 10 boys this game is out of the park dudesssssssssssss
Doesn’t work anymore pls help
so much better than flappy bird, masterpiece
flappy bird= 321
Maverick Bird= 35
Similar game on Android inspired by Maverick Bird

Fun game but it won’t work!! It’s really good but I can’t play it!!
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!!!
Oh thank god you took it down…. I replaced uncountable hours of productive work for a 238 high score.
Rejoice and kiss all your productive hours of work goodbye, Maverick Bird is up again!!! Woohoo! Thanks, Terry! 😀
WT*? It said it can only be played on distractionware.com…
LOLOLOLOL re-made super hexagon game…>:[ and academy student vs super hexagon…….here’s now and flash super hexagon….
High score is 11. I feel so accomplished.
(Also, a Maverick Bird that looks and plays like Maverick Bird is on Android under the title Vitsum HardJumper: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vitsum.hardjumper)
i love this game. high score is 77 😀
This game is awesome!!!
안드로이드 버전나오면 바로삼
Just chiming in to let you know this game is great, Terry. Also, reminder that you’d have purchases with a port to iOS and android (including one from me)!
