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!

Surprisingly amusing.

I expected this game to be stupid, but it's a lot better than I thought. I actually liked the layout and found the game funny. The boss battles were annoying at times, but not too hard. The final one was really annoying with my 3-in-the-morning-induced impaired reflexes.

Good Job Tom!

To me it had a reference to the columbine incident, with gothics shooting up the whole school. I gave it a zero for humor because it was a good game overall, it just wasn't funny.

I'm sorry

Look first of all kids shooting up a school is not humoris second of all a person does not decide to shoot up a school because he does not like education a kid shoots up a school because they are bullyed or teased. Third of all this is very mean I know a lot of goths seing as how I am a metal head most of my friends are gothic anyway they are very nice and happy as any one else. I know I might be taking this a little to seriously but this is just mean and very sad not funny. The only reason I did not give it a zero is because I know you still put effort into it.
