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!

Nostalgia hits harder than school children with guns :P

13 years later and NOW I realize I don't even have the first achievement.

For an old flash game, it's pretty rockin'!

this was my childhood game, this game would give me nightemares 12years ago, LMFAO/

Absolute classic I remember being a wee boy when this first came around and i got caught playing it, good times.
