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!

Aww yeah this is the shit! Kill me now!



Was there ever a Pico 2? I've always wondered that. Regardless this game was my intro to Pico and I like it.



good game from our lord and savior tom fulp but is anyone else's trophys not working



I just played this game recently after the last time I played it 8 years ago and all I have to say is... amazing, simply amazing. Its incredible to think that all the flash games, all the memories, all the talented artists and programmers who got their start on this site, all came from this flash game from 20 years ago. Incredible.
