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!

Great game

I gave it a nine out of ten, because the last boss has way too much health. It takes for ever to kill him, and once you realize what his attacks are its extremely repetative. Shoot barrels, eyes body, repeat till dead. Thats all you do.

well tom that was pretty nice, I'm sure that's probably not your best work ever but it was good. probably the worst thing was all the clicking on the bosses but still OK
