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!

Well...

It's not the best game I've ever played, but it is the first flash game I've ever played, on NewGrounds or any other website. But it wasn't my favorite. So, why blam something that was made many years ago with Flash 3, I mean come on, this game has a lot of points, so one blam isn't gonna lower it's score that much, unless you were level 60 or something. Fairly good game Tom.

Too Short, But Good

Overall, I liked it. I played this a few years back and could never beat Cassandra. This time, I beat him/her on my first try! It was kinda short, although I still enjoy a good point-and-click once in a while.

I liked that it was mainly targeting goths, and the ending was even funnier.

Also, why does Cassandra grow a penis, and why does he/she turn into a monster? What's the story behind that? I would really like to know.

Not bad

Nothing very special, but I played it hardcore. Nice bosses and nice %u0441onclusion. I like Pico games so it's pretty nice :)

Way too hard

This was ok, but it was way too hard. I mean, I couldn't even come close to beating the second boss!
