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!

That was awesome

Well... I wouldn't really call them Goth Kids, I'd consider them metal head kids, but either way the game is fuckin' great. Only reason I gave you a nine on the sound was cause of the starting music hum thing... I think it was the teacher speakin' that kinda hurt my ears. Still Great Great Great, and the music is awesome... not goth, but still awesome

Awsome, even though its old but...

you know how xgen studios has a new online game called "stick arena" it would be awsome you made an online game with dan. It should be called "newgrounds portal battle" where u pick ur charecter and fight online. and you can chat. well if you do make one that would be awsome!
