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 a good classic
But the HTML5 Version screwed up most of the code, meaning no sound, no more medals, and some glitches

what happened to the sound?

TomFulp responds:

I uploaded an HTML5 version and now it defaults to that because recent browser updates act like Flash no longer exists. We'll be addressing this after the new project system launches.

What happened to the volume man?? Also where's my fucking medal????

what happened with the volume?

just as difficult as i remember
