Quick 2020 Review from your favorite dead head:
A Bad Taste of Pico certainly didn't leave a bad taste in my mouth! ...You see what I did there? Cause the game is actually pretty decent. So it didn't....leave...a bad taste....you know what forget about it.
It's a short sweet romp. You follow Pico 2 years after "the school incident". Apparently chickens have turned murderous and humanoid, and it is up to none other than Pico himself to bring chickens back down to their rightful place in society, which is fried and in a bucket.
It's a platformer shooter (which if I may interject into my own review, is a genre that seemed to be capitalized during this era and since forgotten about :/). That's all I really have on the gameplay tbh. You run around shooting chickens with a machine gun. Not much explaining there. Where it really shines is in the artwork. UltraPitchFork delivered here and he delivered hard. The animation is fluid, looks nice, and the backgrounds are filled with little details that make me wonder how people make these types of games and release them for free.
Aside from that, my only real complaint is that the game is short. But that's not always a bad thing. My guess is if you're still playing free browser games in 2020 like I am, you're not in it for a long time but for a good time (or your attention span is shit like mine). Definitely give this one a go, it holds up well. You could convince me it was made more recently than 11 years ago.
Oh yeah, the music also slaps. Now that I think of it, all 3 of these developers went hard.
