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!

Good Work Buuut...

Hey, bruddah. Don't get me wrong but, THIS SHOULD BECOME A PUBLISHED GAME JUST LIKE "ALEIN HOMONID" An exception to this would be it should be 3D. You are probably one of the best flash artists on this web site. Keep up the good work. I hope my flash can be a successful as yours. My first flash will debute roughly next month. Go Tom!

Funny and True

This game is pretty funny but could be made better with the interaction being better.
