Pretty good work, but I like old mrNinya's remake much more - it had renewed gameplay and some interesting features (like 3D parallax effect and more action-styled gameplay instead of point'n'click/rail shooter scheme of the original). This version plays exactly like old Pico's School, but considering that Pico's School itself is hardly an interesting flash game by today standarts, it feels somewhat shallow. Still a good job anyway - it was fun to remember my youth :)

Game is alright. The last boss it very touchy on where you have to click to counter attacks and the stuff falling.

Strategy for final boss is to shoot the boss. It has a few attacks. 1.) throws a barrel. Shoot the barrel before it hits you. 2.) Laser eyes. The eyes will glow white before attacking. Shoot the eyes while they are white. 3.) Falling ceiling. Boss will stomp the ground and then the ceiling will fall. Shoot the ceiling before it hits you.

Extra help. Shoot the flammable barrel on the right to blow out the back wall and the police will help you shoot the boss.

I can't give it more than that, as it is JUST a remake, a damn good one, but still a remake. I would give it 5 stars, but I see it near impossible to beat that ninja.

I'd have to say overall, it was a good game. The boss battles were really hard but I guess that makes up for it being such a short game. The main thing I would change is to have a feature where you can skip the dialogue because it gets annoying after a while.

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.
