Serious imperfections. Funtion-wise, this game is prettymuch identical to the original, but with a smoother frame rate and smoother, more modern graphics. Past that I guess you added achievements, but this game was plagued by extreme shooting controls difficulty I really don't remember in the original. Was so bad at shooting things out of the air with hitbox issues I'd just sit there and camp for that 1 piece of ceiling to fall back down or whatever and would STILL miss it 3-5 clicks later. Not bad. Not Great. And achievements have fairly vague descriptors, such as speed run time limit or the Marc Summers deal.

Hey, sorry to hear that. I must agree with you though that I should've done some refinement, due the deadline there was no time for that. But I'm bringing out a patch today which will fix all these issues.

Hate to say it, but I liked the original better....loved the medals(and I'm leaving music out, my girlfriend is asleep right next to me so I've got it muted_ but I'm one of those people who got angry with the starwars special editions, not just for the stupid changes they made, but for it not being as grainy as it should be....haven't played the original in years, but in my head I still prefer those graphics.....yay for medals, but take a lesson from star wars, and DON'T FUCK WITH THE CLASSICS!!!!!!

Kenney responds:

Hey no worries, some people are more for remakes some for originals. I made this game as an homage to the original. These sort of games can hardly be improved because of the nostalgia. I'm not taking any lessons from Star Wars though.

I was so hyped about this game and you didn't disappoint.
It was a great throwback to an NG classic and a great introduction for those who haven't played original Pico's School. The fact that this was made in one week makes it even more impressive.
The art was great, gameplay is simple and smooth and the music is better then I expected it to be.
Oh, and one thing that every second review mentions, where you shoot the guy who throws scat at you, yeah, put that in and make a medal out of it It is one detail but details make games great.
I really hope you are planning to make a sequel :)
