Angry Faic is leading a group of misfits and miscreants through Newgroundsville! Take control of Pico and put an end to their reign of terror! Fight in one of 3 different Arenas for as long as you can. Go for the highest score on the leaderboards or just try to get past 10 waves to get a Platinum medal for that level.

Blast different types of Villains from different Newgrounds flash games and movies; Uber Kids from Pico, Thingy Majigs from Chibi Knight, FBI agents from Alien Hominid and the Spiders from The Fancy Pants Adventures.

Get power-ups, jump up walls and slide around and shoot the enemies behind you Action Movie style! There are a selection of ways to go about navigating the Arenas and killing your foes.

Patch v1.1 (12/May/2011):
- Lowered Platinum requirement for Arenas down to Wave 8 (instead of 10).
- Lowered "requirement" for Secret Medal (Hint: you must complete a certain "special" wave).
- Added the ability to shoot while in the air.
- Added menu for customising controls (press [S] while near Tom in the main area).
- Fixed fast fingers so it works while on walls and running.
- Made shooting while running faster.
- Increased Power-up drop chance to 20% (up from 15%).
- Increased Uber Kids run speed slightly.



the control is neither bad nor laggy, stop act like a little bitch
the programmer tries to make it a little bit realistic and that's why you have delay (the degree is about 0.1second) whenever u command any action
i know you still dont understand, an example:
when u crouched down, if you press [up] and then [left] or [right], you wont move left or right instantly, you have to wait for him to stand up first
another example,
when u wall jump, you cant press and hold [s] and jump frequently, you have to wait for him to completely stick on the wall first.

Nice graphics, but game ruined by bad controls

I feel bad giving this a low rating like this, since the graphics and design are very nice. This just happens to be one of those games that leave me wondering how a game with such nice graphics could be ruined by serious shortcomings in terms of gameplay.

The main complaint are the controls. It seems like the whole game has a graphics oriented design: you first create the animation and then try to fit the controls into the animation. Well, the animations are very nice, but this is supposed to be a game so that doesn't seem to work really. Just moving back and forth seems too clunky and you almost have to stop to shoot at your enemies. You can't even shoot while airborne.

Because of the clumsy controls there can't be much enemies around to make the levels manageable, which leads to two things: boring levels/foes and a feeling of being bad at playing a game like this. A good game of this genre would do the opposite: give a positive challenge that also results in a feeling of satisfaction once you beat the enemies.

Good for a while

I like the game in general but then there was a point when a bug appeared. I followed a yellow cop guy and sudden he shoot in the sky. From that point it became laggy and i couln't finish because of him

Torrunt responds:

Woah :S that sounds weird, never heard of that happening before.

Fun but very laggy

I played the first level and the controls are super laggy. It is still a fun game, just hard to kill things when you have to press a button and wait a minute for the character to react.

I still like it

Seriously, the animation and artwork is AMAZING. I've never seen a game play so smooth on newgrounds. Good job! this need some improvment, but it's still good!
