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!

Ahhh nostalgia...

Cant believe it's been years since I've played this. This was the mark for every submission in NG and I'm pleased to say I've go to experience this prior to the other spectacular games/movies I've seen. The game is still very stylish and fucking hilarious with the humor and story. Really shows you how much the site has evolved from something so simple and fun like this to the masses of submissions everywhere.

(Note to the new dudes: This was one of the very first submissions of newgrounds. Also the graphics "suck" cause like the games long ago...they worked with the shit the had available. Show some respect.)
