XBLA Review - 'The Fancy Pants Adventures'
13 August 2011
Summary: Based on The Fancy Pants Adventures flash game, this classic side-scrolling platformer features a unique, hand-drawn style while taking all of the exciting adventures from the original two games and now adds an entirely new world, all-new story and new modes designed exclusively for consoles.
Excerpt: The stick-figure star of The Fancy Pants Adventures takes his moniker seriously. Throughout this cartoonish platformer, you unlock new weapons, hats, and, of course, pants. Our hero wears pink, purple, and plaid with panache, and he slides along curved slopes with equal style. He likes to stay in motion, and certain sequences feel enjoyably effortless as you leap from springboards into the air and coast down steep slopes like a gangly Tommy Moe.
Pros: The best levels let you get into a slick, speedy groove, Cute, simple visual style, Co-op play and competitive races are a delight
Cons: Slippery physics aren't suited tor precise platforming sections, Combat isn't fun
Excerpt: The Fancy Pants Adventures is a lot like sweatpants; a bit flimsy and aimless, not willing to fully grasp the concept of being pants, but still giving it a shot. The fabric holding the game together originated in a Flash-based title of the same name. There are holes in undesirable places and it’s not much for presentation values, but there’s still a fondness there – this is something readily familiar, a lot like other products you have owned, and that’s comfortable.
Excerpt: Bit of an odd game, this one! The Fancy Pants Adventure started life as a Flash game and was welcomed by the gaming community, very similar to Supermeat Boy. Just like SMB, it has now made its way to consoles.
Pros: + Cute visuals, + Easy to Play, + A completionist's dream!

Entertainment: This clever new adventure is fun but sometimes frustrating
Excerpt: It’s shocking how little Fancy Pants Adventures has evolved since its 2006 debut as a Flash game. Five years ago, sprinting and wall-jumping among unadorned static platforms — collecting squiggles and power-sliding through spiders — might’ve been a satisfying distraction. Nowadays, you’ll wonder if that’s all there is. Unfortunately, the answer is “pretty much.
Cons: - Sleep-inducing; even bosses do little more than pace back and forth., - Inconsistent platform edges; co-op camera zooms too far out, and slowpokes are executed in co-op., ? In multiplayer, how come only hosts can save and unlock Achievements?
Kleine Strichmännchen erobern die Xbox 360. Mit The Fancy Pants Adventures wird die Next-Gen Konsole zum virtuellen Malblock. Liebevolle, handgemalte Zeichnungen erwachen zum Leben und bringen euch in ein verrücktes und
Excerpt: A l'instar de Super Meat Boy, Fancy Pants Adventures profite de son relatif succès sur le Net pour venir faire un tour du côté des consoles. Mais ce jeu de plates-formes aura-t-il le même succès que le bout de bidoche ?
