The Fancy Pants Adventures

The Gamers Temple
10 July 2011
  • Excerpt: With the heyday of platform games behind us (at least for now), it’s good to know that you can turn to XBLA for a fun platformer now again even though the big publishers are apparently hesitant to invest in marquee titles in the genre these days. The Fancy Pants Adventures is one of those games that manage to capture the pure spirit of fun at the core of old school platform games, and remind us of how much we miss them.

  • Summary: What’s your videogame origin story? Everyone has one; it’s the game that hit you like a radioactive spider bite the first time you played it and turned you into the gamer you are today. I’ll bet for most gamers, it was one of the classic 2D side-scrolling platformers that were popular on 8 or 16 bit systems from way back when. I certainly remember the day my friend got his Nintendo Entertainment System and fired up Super Mario Bros. for the first time.

  • Summary: 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: 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!
  • Cons: Controls are a bit 'Floaty'

The Fancy Pants Adventures Heads To The Big Consoles

Game Informer

  • Conclusion: Concept: Build up and momentum for the big jumps across some large platforming playgrounds Graphics: Simple, childlike visuals are like a sketch come to life Sound: The catchy music can get a little repetitive Playability: Getting a feel for the controls takes time since speed of movement and direction on the stick profoundly affects where you land Entertainment: This clever new adventure is fun but sometimes frustrating Replay: Moderate

  • 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.
  • Pros: + Lots of collectibles; simple acrobatics offer low-key satisfaction; optional challenges.
  • 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?

  • 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 ?
