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!

This is probably the most iconic game of newgrounds.

this game is seriously freakin sick

Pico is literally the face of Newgrounds. Without him, Newgrounds wouldn't be as popular and well-known as it is.

As a kid, this game was frickin' impossible. I would always get stuck in the ''wizard''-level, because the game's pace was just too fast for me to comprehend.

The only thing I don't like about this game, is the replacement of soundtracks. This game would definitely have gotten 5 stars from me, if just the old soundtrack was kept onto this game.

este juego me gusto

Best flash game in 2006
