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!

A classic and its amazing. If you want a fun thrill you play this game. The hardest part in the game for me would be the ninja. The reason I love this is because it has a violent thrill and this should win an award for violent games. This would be great to have a new game other than the April fools one. The alien in the end is a great surprise too!

This game is a classic. It's fun from beginning to end. It created one of the more well known mascots and it despite being based on a school shooting it's tone doesn't distract from the game itself. If I have one bad thing to say though it's that Hanzou is a pain in the ass to beat. Other than that this game is top notch.
