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!

I played this back in high school and although I don't remember it having any medals, this game is still as freakin' AWESOME now as it was back then. This game is a classic!

Got all the medals, thank you TomFulp for the game! Phew, that was a close one when i bet Casandra or Cassandra at the last scene of the game, that was hard though.

Good for its time. This was one of the first games I ever played on Newgrounds, and despite the simplicity of it, it's still pretty fun. It's kind of funny to think that this game caused a moral panic. By today's standards, it's pretty damn tame. Playing it again after so long, it does feel a bit dated, and the boss battles DO leave a lot to be desired (Alucard and Cassandra can be beaten without getting hit once when you learn their patterns, and Hanzou is all but guaranteed free hits on you due to the fact that you can't move), but it's still a nice little time waster, and fun to play if you're feeling nostalgic.

This is very similar to South Park... BUT BETTER!!!
More violence. Best jokes... And Darnell!!! Oh, Darnell... When I knew that he loves the fire like me (More psychopathic than I, but he love it like me) that was the last straw: The Pico's World is dreadful... BUT EXTREMELY AWESOME!!!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

It has a very Southpark like charm.
