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!

Very good classic. The only thing that I don't like about it is the annoying, repetitive sound at the very beginning when the Teacher is talking.

a classic Newgrounds game, while the game is easy to play some of the fights can be a little difficult but as you play them more you learn how to kill the bosses.
if your looking for some classic newgrounds games this is one of them.

It's 90's trash, but the kind of trash I like. The kind of game that you come home to after a long day at school, and make sure your mom isn't looking.

The game itself is almost 20 years old, so I can forgive it for having issues such as being able to pick up the same key item more than once, and artifical difficulty. At the same time, it adds charm.
