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!

Fulp, you did it again

Since I had a laptop mouse, I could never beat Pico. But thanks to Pico day and your remake, I got to see the ending.

Why?

Why would you submit on Pico Day with old flashes. Everyone is gonna kiss ass and give you a major score and no one else will have a fighting chance to atleast get a Daily Feature. It's still a great game and I'm amazed on how you created it but come on.
