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!

Man i do really love this game but the boss battle with Hanzou is so goddamn hard



I got two word to said about this game

OH YEHHHH



It's amazing how well this holds up. Well, I guess nostalgia filter is in effect. The music was great. I love how it all leads up to such a great boss fight. I'm not going to write a strategy guide here. I assume everyone can figure this out.

Okay, the artwork doesn't hold up. I wish the portal had existed before 2000. There's history of this website going back to 1999. It was still founded back then. Glad to see something still popular. Well, games are always more popular than movies here anyway.



I remember playing this in 3rd grade in 2003. Good times lol.
