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!

Whoa

This was awsome but the ninja boss was hard which was good and challenging and the final boss was easy ( tip: to any one who doesnt know you have to shoot the final boss' dick off) 5/5

Exciting Adventure! I suggest everyone tries this.

I don't usually play games that have long storylines because even professinally made ones today fail miserably or just copy someone else. My friends who are newgrounds nuts told me I had to give this a shot no matter what, and they have bad taste in everything, music for example: Justin Timberlake, so I sometimes forget what they mentioned. But to my surprise this made me sit on the edge of my seat the whole way!

However is usually how I start a sentence when I start criticising but there is no need for that this time! Awsome game and now I can see why Pico and is friends are the main characters on this site. I actually wish this went longer but all good things must come to an end!
