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!

Still a classic

This game is still the pinnacle of Flash gaming, the recent re-make fades in comparison to the original, good work!

FUNNESS!! nice game but really hard

The game overall was really good but was really hard and kinda frustrating when u cant get past a place. I suggest making the game a little easier.

Pico School is the best game on Newgrounds!

I love this game ...
I played this game back in the day before I was ever suppose to be on newgrounds becaause I was like ... 7-8yrs old but I STILL LOVE IT. This game is a Classic. I still laugh everytime I see that Too Much Gore For Your Computer thing because I use to think my computer was actually having problems when I was that young Lol
