Zombies are on the loose and only Pico can put a stop to them! Programming by Tom Fulp, art by Mindchamber!

Completely mouse-driven, walk around and hold down your button to shoot. We originally started making this for a Warioware-esque game collab that never got off the ground. I decided to dust it off for Pico Day and we added a boss! Now we have all sorts of other ideas to flesh it out, but I ran out of time for Pico Day. It's a bit short and simple, but hopefully you'll enjoy it while it lasts!

Happy Pico Day :)

It's great to see some official content for the day, I thought it was going to be only the community participating.

Interesting engine, using only the mouse. As mentioned in previous reviews, this can be a bad and good thing, but to be honest, I would have
preferred a Keyboard-Mouse system, walking and turning with the keyboard and using the mouse to shoot. The mouse-only system works for a while, but soon becomes irritating and difficult to control.

Is this the Pico 2 engine at an early stage? I know it'll be a while before that happens, but...It certainly looked impressive (Great art) and felt 'next-gen' so to speak.

Given the time contraints, I think this is a good little game, but way too easy (I didn't die once....) but perhaps a glimpse of the future.

Nice.

Very good i liked it.

The graphics were very good. The only problem l had was the controls, although they were very original it would of been better if you could make him face the way the arrow is, but still be able to shoot, instead of having to take your finger off the mouse every time you wanted to turn. Other then that the game had a addicting concept and a wide flow of on-coming Zombies.

Excellent job guys, keep up the good work.

There are only a few things you could improve

One thing I noticed is that Pico doesn't turn around if you're holding down the mouse button. Sometimes that would mess people up, but other times, I think it would be useful. The game also gets very difficult very quickly, what with the zombies homing in on you and the gun speed and power not improving. I understand how this would be perfect for a game collab, but by itself, it could be given a bit more playability if powerups were used.
But overall, great job, guys. Happy Pico Day!
