Pico vs Bear

Author Comments

The big bear has gone mad with distemper. Pico is called in to bring him down!

I originally released this on Newgrounds at the end of 1999. It was developed in Flash 4 but I've updated the controls to take advantage of Flash 5+, which solved the keyboard lag problems in the previous version. I also added more health and more ammo, to make things easier for people. Enjoy!

Been about 20 years since I first played this, more or less, still really difficult and randomly buggy. I only ever beat it once, and just discovered holding down the button gives auto fire. Not sure if that is new?

good game

Sucks in comparison to the other Pico-games.

The game is super fun but the last part doesn't work for me. I read the dialog then either my mouse gets locked in the center and everything explodes or the bear insta-explodes and I die. I even watched how to beat the game but I can't get it to work. This game is 14 years old so I doubt it'll get fixed and maybe it doesn't really matter. I was just playing all the Pico games and wanted to share this issue I had, but it would be sweet to be able to finish it.
Edit: I finally beat it, thanks for fixing it Tom!

Was running it via in-browser emulation but I've disabled that for now. It should work via Newgrounds Player (desktop app) or if your browser has Flash installed.
