Goth kids have shot up your school, and it's up to Pico to save the day! Originally featured on Newgrounds in 1999, I finally refactored the .FLA to accommodate faster computers. The problem with this game was that it was meant to run at 24fps, but boss battles slowed down and made things easier. As computers got faster, so did the boss battles.

Pico was made in Flash 3, before the availability of variables (or just about any code, for that matter). To simulate stored data, I weaved a complex web of movie clips that gave orders to the main game. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware of frame labels, so all the commands referred to frame numbers. This meant making changes to the flow of a boss battle (ie inserting frames to slow down movement) caused MASSIVE problems to arise. I finally muscled through it, so now you can beat the bosses on a fast computer!

Marc Summers is supposedly OCD with hygiene so he probably runs the sink a lot. Scat man would involve something where there's poop.

Medal review: Little late to the review party on this game but I think this is a good list overall except for the fact that most of the medals are secret. I hate secret medals more than anything and while most aren't hard to get they still remain hidden and that bugs me. Good list otherwise.

TomFulp responds:

Sorry for all the secret medals - they relate to easter eggs in the game so I couldn't get too descriptive or else it would give them away. Maybe I could re-approach them more creatively though.

Great game!
