Angry Faic is leading a group of misfits and miscreants through Newgroundsville! Take control of Pico and put an end to their reign of terror! Fight in one of 3 different Arenas for as long as you can. Go for the highest score on the leaderboards or just try to get past 10 waves to get a Platinum medal for that level.

Blast different types of Villains from different Newgrounds flash games and movies; Uber Kids from Pico, Thingy Majigs from Chibi Knight, FBI agents from Alien Hominid and the Spiders from The Fancy Pants Adventures.

laggy crap

slow and laggy play, unresponsive or too slow controls, and just overall lack of how to die or not die since pico can apparently take a bazillion bullets and still survive, yet there's no way to jump to avoid bullets. You need to get your basic controls to be good first before making sliding, and clinging, and shooting up and shit which are basically pointless because they don't help you.

Well made

I dislike being the minority but oh well. I thought the controls were pretty damn good. I did not see them as some fundamental flaw in game play but rather as an amusing challenge. Hell, once you learn to compensate for the admittedly unusual controls they can even be rather useful, like sliding away from the enemy in a crouch as you aim behind you so you can put distance between them and yourself while still getting ready to shoot.

I mean honestly it gives you easy to execute wall jumps, power-ups and the ability to duck under most enemy fire. If the controls didn't slide a little instead of turning on a dime and did allow you to spam the jump button it would be no challenge at all.

I realize that nowadays people don't really enjoy a good challenge in their games anymore, but I don't think their was anything to fix in the controls. I do however admit that being able to jump and shoot at the same time would be nice.

Sluggish and unintuitive

The presentation is nice, and the idea is cool, but the controls are far too sluggish. There's this awful delay between actions (landing from a jump, standing up from a crouch, turning around) that makes everything feel like it's happening in a sea of sticky molasses, and it really messes up any attempt at strategy since you need to plan for those immense delays when trying to position yourself advantageously, otherwise the extremely fast enemies catch up to you easily before you can even fire a shot. Jumping feels quite inaccurate, and the wall clinging is even slower than anything else in the game.

But the worst part, the part that RUINS the good qualities of the gameplay, is not being able to shoot while jumping. Jumping and shooting at the same time is the heart and soul of any platforming shooter, and taking it out is like making a platformer where you can't jump. It means every time I jump I'm completely fucking useless, and the nature of the gameplay means I'm jumping all the fucking time. Consequently, this game feels slow, is awkward to control, and doesn't actually let me attack about 50% of the time.

A decent effort with some very misguided controls. I give you a 6 and voted the game 3/5 because you can fix these things, and easily, and if you did your game would be quite good. But as it stands I won't ever play it past the first wave.

too slow.

the game would have been better if it was faster- the fact that pico slid and jumping was unresponsive made the whole thing just a little bit on the wrong side of average.

for shame- it could have, nay should have, been awesome- but this is boring, near-unplayable garbage.
