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!

Holds up to time

This game is innovative that is what I look for I had to give it a low score on graphics just because its the only part that didn't hold up to the times.

I liked it liked it alot

really really good. Pico the ginger that wears green takes on a school of goths lol and prevails lol. Just wondering if you are gonna carry on with another pico game like this considering how the game ended with a bunch of "ghetto gangstas" coming to the scholl interesting how that one will turn out. Great game keep up the good work and if you could reply and tell us if you are going to make a sequel witht the kids from the ghetto lol.

Pretty crap.

Needs more work, I'd say its too basic for my style. If people dissagree with me I can see why, because it's OK but again like i said, it's too basic for me and probably alot of other people out there.
