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!

OMG Good game, needs a little work though.

Okay I am not trying to shoot down this game, I thought it was great, although it needs a little work. LOL version 1.1. Okay so I thought the beeping when the teacher talked was brutal. I was literally quivering. So yeah thats like it. Yeah can you make more bosses and the night-vision fight a little easier(I had 4 times trying to do it and I finally succeeded with 1 health bar left)? Other than those I'm good great game A++!!!

Still a great game

Hey Tom. I've played Pico's School when it first came out and I loved it instantly. Playing it again made me enjoy it even more since I haven't played it for such a long time. Though most of the game seems to have remained the same, it just seemed new to me. Congragulations for making an instant favorite for the web and I hope to see more of your work.

Great Game

This has to be one of the greatest games that I have ever played. I loved it the violence was great. It is a good puzzle game makes you think for a little bit. Great Game I think a sequel would be nice.
