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!

I beat the survival mode after the game aswell!

That was a great game and it was really challenging, although some how I managed to beat the survival mode at the end, as proof I will quote you "WOW! Even I programmed the game and even I couldnt' beat it, I smell hax" LOL. I love this game it's awesome one day I hope to make something like this, I have the drawing skills but not the action script *cries*.
overall, this game is SEXY TIMES.

5/5 Would play again.

Update: I played it again.

But in all seriousness, this is a pretty fun game. Plan on making a Let's play on it!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


it doesn't matter what pattern it has, it's impossible not to get attacked constantly and die.

:-) Revoo's strategy should keep you scratch free from the boar. Man, you're going to HATE the Destructor boss.

Have fun!! :-)
