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!

Ha.

Didn't expect you to resubmit Pico's School. It's still a good game, though.

The story is simplistic, but in a good way.

The style of death, gore and violence is...interesting.

The music is good. But the sound gets a little annoying a little.

Violence! Yay!

The ending is funny. :P

Overall, a classic.

P.S. Is something special gonna happen today? Because people on the BBS say something bout a new layout or something. :\

Just great as it has always been!

Tom, that was about time you submitted this one! The game is still great, after all those ages. Looks like it doesn't age at all :)
By the way, what's the Hive song you've used in the game (still searching for that...)
And last but not least
...
happy birthday to you!
