I enjoyed it, but it's a bit rough? I guess?

I really did like the game, the movies and satire on the Newgrounds fads was very nice and well done, whoever played Pico was brilliant at it. So animation and sound-wise, very nice and stylish, though the music for the last level of the super flash bros. level keeps playing during the end movie. A little louder than normal, too, so I couldn't hear it first run through (went back and watched it via the menu).
Gameplay-wise, though, it's a bit smooth, yet sloppy, to be honest... the tutorial level was good, though i expirenced a few bugs (blood followed the screen around, when reaching the "borders" pico moved somewhat weird), but was not annoying, still enjoyed it.
David Firth's level was a tad annoying becuase the enemies fell from above somewhat fast and i couldn't move out of the way fast enough sometimes, but a bit of difficulty is to be expected. Ending movie very much like the Firthman.
The "madness" level was quite hard for me during the latter parts, and I never did beat it, so sorry about that. Greneade Launcher wasn't much help. ;(
The Flash Bros. Levels are a good concept, however they don't play well. It was very annoying on the "Master Queef" level to have the characters stop mid-air, and float around a-whimsy. The stamina didn't really seem to recharge itself quite... evenly I guess? I was getting numbers like 100.1203014551253 and etc. It may have been deemed more apt to use a HP bar there, or at least an HP checker for each char (if(_root.mycharHP>100){_root.
mycharHP = 100}, that sort of thing), or it may not have worked for me, i dunno.
Balance-wise, it was odd to have only 2 guns to have limited ammo and the other 2 to not have them, but it was a good play nonetheless. It worked well for the circumstances.

I give this a solid 9/10, it looks like alot of work, there was solid animation and good humor, as well as good gameplay, though not linked together as well as it could have been. Great job.

oh, and back butan plz when pico dies kthnx

The first 2 things are sadly things I forgot. The super flash brother movies was the last to be added, and we kept having Scene-related problems (scenes got out of sync for no reason). So after putting it in, we were ready to submit and we didn't really test if it was flawless. The 100.1512385390 thing was a same -stupid- thing, there were supposed to be little recharge meters, but we just forgot XD, otherwise I would have just Math.round-ed it. :P And about dying: Please read the author's notes. Press escape to return to the menu. I thought it would be obvious, but most people didn't find that out.. As for the madness levels, try a bit more. You've only unlocked 4/7 weapons, once you get a little further, you'll unlock the AK47 and that'll help you a lot. Also remember: The shotgun is your best friend :)

I liked it.

The graphics were pretty nice and I thought it was funny. I did have some problems, though. 1. when you die, it doesn't go back to the main menu or anything. 2. I sometimes got mixed up on switching weapons (which were oddly balanced) and 3. the Krinkels level: pain in the ass.


PivotGames responds:

1: Press escape (see author's notes)
2: Yeah that's kinda annoying. But try picking up ammo with your favourite gun, You can carry 2 clips if you don't switch weapons. You can also switch weapons with the mouse.
3: Yeah =D It was hard but we decided not to make the Krinkels level too long, (or it would be by far the longest level) but make it hard instead ;)

Hm..

Not...Wait...NOWHERE as good as i thought it would be. After i got past the tutorial level, my brain couldnt take anymore. Its because of games like this that Pico was kicked out of the top 50...-sigh-...

There were many glitches when I played

Whenever I died everything would keep happening like it did before, except im dead. So I had to restart the game every time I died. Also, When I beat James the Zebra, the music was louder than the sequence which involved the super flash bros. Im guessing this wasn't intentional. Hope I helped!


PivotGames responds:

Yeah we noticed that just after submitting, but I'm having some trouble with my fla file so I can't really fix it. The game remembers which movies are unlocked, however, and you can view the movies again from the movie theather, in the menu! Also, don't forget to view the level selection, it has some fun bonus stuff (like multiplayer mode)
