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!

Interesting how Cassandra would be an Antifa terrorist by modern standards. Some things never change.

This is great game in best traditions of Classic Newgrounds games - diverse gameplay for each stage, lots of bosses, lots of secrets and lots of politically incorrect dark humor.

The only thing I feel it lacks is some "standard" gameplay between the bosses that would make it longer, because it's quite short.



Nice Hanzou and Cyclops are the best villains but he don,t have to use german crosses i beat this 16/2/2018 in 4 minutes



Absolute classic. Kinda makes me miss the late 90's/early 2000's edginess. Also, use mousekeys on that final boss.
