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!

Holy Cow!

Wow, that was the best game EVER! Thanks for revising it because before I could not beat the first boss because it was going so damn fast! Just a small question, does it get annoying when people keep making other picco games that rip off the game? Thanks for Newgrounds!

An NG Classic

The game is very developed and although lacking in a lot of areas still very true to the NG legacy. This is what Newground(s) was built off of, and deserves to be number one as a salute to that idea, as well as to you, Tom Fulp.
