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!

Fun Game; Very Short

I found the game to be pretty fun, but i was able to beat it in 7 minutes...You should remake it with better Graphics, and a longer story. Bosses were good, not to much of a challenge, and the last boss was quiet funny.

Tip for people having trouble on last boss:
Shoot at that barrel behind him...The flammable thing. It will have the cops on the other side will shoot at him, lowering his total Health slowly.

Brilliant game, few flaws.

A brilliant, and amazingly popular game. A nice blend of gameplay, originality, and sound. I found the last level to be a bit of a bitch, but all in all, nice work Tom!
