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.

So many complaints.

First of all, it was an interesting concept, but the controls are shit. It takes Pico about 10 minutes to stop running and then 5 minutes to turn around. He can't shoot enemies that are coming up an incline and why the hell does he stop dead as soon as he hits the ground after a jump? Is he a cripple now? Very disappointing for a Pico Day game.

fun concept, but boring game

I really like the concept but the game play is just boring, almost pointless and way to many flaws. First controls are much to unresponsive which leave the player annoyed and makes game play annoying as hell and the lack of a jump and shoot feature, but I do like the slide and shoot. Also the enemy respawn rate is way to low and way to slow. I would advise a sort of upgrade system in this sort of game which gives the player some sort of something to gain by playing, a life bar because I had no clue if I could even die, harder enemies, and remove the upwards shooting feature because its pointless. If u do those things u would have a much more enjoyable game. :)

controls feel bad

overall the concept is cool but controls dont feel good and are slopy


Rated 2 / 5 stars


You do the same thing over and over again (Shoot, shoot, and more shooting). You can plaster a popular NG character in your game but if the game doesn't offer much then people lose interest. The reason why people will rate it 9 or 10 is because it has pico. They're oblivious of the repetitive gameplay. I'm not trolling I'm just stated my opinion.

This game kinda sucks....sort of.

As far as mechanics go, this game is solid. The animations trigger smoothly, and the controls "work". The problem is that it doesnt play well. This game has an innumerable body of annoying and often lethal glitches, bugs, and lags. Jumping is always a crapshoot, touching walls is a death sentence, and doing anything on a sloped surface is just plain bad luck. The levels, though artfully designed, dont lend themselves to this type of gameplay, and would work out alot better if they were flatter. The AI is not spectacular, but then again it doesnt need to be. The bigest problem is by far the slow control response speed, which often gets you killed (speaking of, there is no real way to tell how close you are to death, the damage numbers seem pretty arbitrary). The good news is that this game COULD be made into something better, as I mentioned before, its assets and animations are solid, it just needs vastly better gameplay.
