Help Pico battle it out in the Dark Ages against the Evil Dark Wizard Allucardis and his vast Army of UberGoths!

If you need help with the bosses, Revoo has posted some strats on the last page of the reviews. They should make the bosses a piece of cake. Good luck!!

**!*! UPDATE 4.0 !*!**
After hearing that enough people were taking issue with the following, now Pico no longer takes a small amount of damage when blocking, and the bosses attack power has been cut in half. Enjoy!

**!*! UPDATE 3.0 !*!**
Holy crap!!! Daily Second! Thank you so much for your support everyone!!

**!*! UPDATE 2.0 !*!**
Bugs with the hero 's health and lives have been fixed, and you can choose whether you want to start a new game or continue at the beginning of a previous stage. UberGoths now have a 10% less chance of blocking. Bosses remain as difficult as ever, Muahahaha!!!

**!*! UPDATE 1.0 !*!**
Front Page!! 4.0 score!! WOOHOO!!! Thank you sooo much everyone!! I'm so glad you're enjoying my game!


Movement: Arrow keys
Attack: 'A'
Block: 'S'
Strong Attack: 'D'

**Warning!** This game may appear too difficult, but keep in mind that each of the three bosses have a pattern. Find the pattern, and they're easy!

Have fun, it's my first full blown (completed... ahem...) game, all in AS 2.0 Object Oriented Programming. Please PM me if you find any bugs!

Very special thanks to the following:

Andy Schlossberg: For the code help and support.

Tom Fulp and friends: For keeping Newgrounds amazing for ten years! Happy Birthday Tom!

Edgen: You make amazing music!! I'm so glad I found your work at the NG Audio Portal!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

it was really good

I really liked this game and I thought the graphics were brilliant, though the bosses were often far to hard, aside from that this game was wickid


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Liked it

I quite liked it, actually. Try putting in some sub-bosses or something, I think that might be a nice touch in place of using the same bosses over. But other than that, pretty good!

How 2 kill bosses

Okay to kill the Boar commander you have to attack its head over and over again until it starts scraping its hoof against the ground.Once it does that get to a distance and when he charges jump over him.Keep doing this until he starts walking around again. then attack then just repeat the cycle.

The Destructor:Run to one side and then run towards him and when he raises his hammer jump and hit him in the jaw. If you miss than dont run to the other side of him run back to the side you were on (If u run to the other side he'll hit you with his hammer).
Keep doing this until he starts using both of his hammers you dont have to jump to avoid them now.Now just stay put and wait for the second hammer when he's charging it jum and hit him.Thats the last blow nice job!

Lucardis:You have to run off the screen to avoid his eye beem. and when you only see his eyes in the sky jump away from them. (they will shake the ground and hurt you.)and when you see a flashing ball run away from it or jump.(Lucardis will try and scratch you.)and then when he laughs attack him! Nice job u killed lucardis... wel you should with all of this typing i did XD.

My hopes:I hope i will get a message from the author since i worked a while on typing this!
