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!

It was okay.

Umm...I think this game was copied but to give it a review, I would say it was okay. It wasn't that hard. All you had to do was kill the guys. So, this game isn't the BEST. It's just...alright to play once when you're bored and there's nothing else to do.

This is and okay game not considering the humor. But when you consider all the humor in this game you understand how this made the front page. This is probably the funniest game I have played on Newgrounds

good job!

I liked that. fun, but not retarded, and a great storyline too. good bosses in the game, and a funny ending. but when I was fighting cassandra (I had the night vision goggles on at that time) and the place where your supposed to shoot him, was, *ahem* exposed. But otherwise, a fun little action game! 5/5
