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!

The classic.

Without this game, NG would be six feet under. It is so fun, from the pointing and clicking to the huge amounts of gore. Definetly recomended to anyone who hasn't played it yet.

Great Pico Day Submission

I can totally picture Pico shooting up a building and taking down goths. Great game. As improvement, maybe have more pickups and maybe a side quest if possible.

Very Good.

This is a good action/adventure game. It just goes to show you never know when goths can turn on you!!!!
